As parents, we’ve all been asked to help with homework and found we haven’t a clue of the answer, struggled to recall the method for getting to the answer in the first place… or worse, found out that the answer has changed since our time at school! 

Give yourself a break with these top five resource sites that are designed to help with homework. Whether you want supporting resources as you help your kids learn, or need platforms where your kids can learn independently, these websites are a great place to start…

Help with homework

1. National Geographic Kids

Okay, so we’re biased, but hear us out. National Geographic Kids compliments the curriculum and prides itself on being an ‘edutainer’ – that is, kids have so much engaging with our content, they don’t even realise they’re learning!

As well as our top-selling magazine – great for reducing screen time for kids – which covers everything from science and nature to world culture, we also have an extensive website bursting with fact files, features and quizzes on everything from the Great Wall of China to the structure of the Earth.

Also worth exploring is our Primary Resources section. These curriculum-aligned, downloadable resources cover Science, Geography, Maths, English and everything between, and come with activity suggestions and guidance on how best to use them.
