- Education City is a fantastic site to help with Reading, Maths, Science, French, German and Spanish. It isn't free, but it is very cheap, it is £20 per year (assuming you use various codes which loads of us have so can provide if you are interested) They do a free 10 day trial first so that you can check if you like it. My son loves using the site, and I like it because I can see how he is progressing, it is also really interesting to see what they are expected to know at different "school year" stages (the science is scary, at 5 my son was doing year 3 / 4 science - it is very simple and I think most HE children will know most of what is on there!) and you can have your child registered for different years for different subjects, e.g. they can be year 1 for Reading, year 2 for Maths and year 3 for science. - Tobermory
