TIME AND SPACE: We've also uploaded a new "Time and Space" page to provide a *framework* for kids to slot their learning into ..... tracing back from how things began, in different geographical areas of the world, to the astonishing speed and diversity of developments today. Worth a look! ... we've had some *very* approving e-mails about this one :)
FREE MATHS RESOURCES: *major* progress here. As many of you will know, the free maths worksheets on the site here were created initially because we couldn't *find* free maths resources that would help kids to learn the basics - addition, subtraction, times tables, division, fractions and percentages. Judging by the visit levels to our on-line worksheets, these have fulfilled a very real need across the world ..... but we were keenly aware that resources were also needed for teaching beyond that stage, to supplement those kindly provided by Cambridge University through their NRICH site, linked from the Maths pages here up to Advanced Level.
We're delighted to say that Kaiya Williams has located a Maths resource that explains every progressive stage of Maths right up to GCSE - and it's FREE. *Complete* teaching guides and worksheets/workbooks from Year 1 through to GCSE ..... select the relevant key stage on our Free Maths Resources page here. We're fairly convinced that the new resource, together with the huge NRICH site and the 4000+ free Maths worksheets on line at the site here, just about "does" Maths (for our purposes, at any rate!) ..... and will benefit not only schools but also the many children on home education worldwide.
ANY LANGUAGE TO ENGLISH: Our thanks to Cindy in Finland, who has offered to translate the English verbs and vocabulary into Finnish, and to Rashid in England who has offered free translation into Bengali - this gives us a total of *eight* languages in this area so far. Click here for details of free language worksheets currently under translation ..... and our thanks to all the translators currently working so hard to make this resource possible :)
Thanks go also to Vanina and Katherine in England, for offering to check Spanish verbs and vocabulary, and to Claude Bourne in Kent, for sending us (free!) a brand new copy of MS Works 2000 for use by one of our translators - we've bought several more new copies of MS Works 2000 from Ebay (auction site) so we have enough for immediate use - however we *will* need more in due course and any that visitors can send in will be very welcome :)
