So much has happened since we last updated the blog. It is hard to believe that we are now in the middle of potentially 3-6 months of lockdown and home schooling for millions of children. We have been using our social media channels to keep everyone updated with what we are doing to help with home schooling. As a new business launched only in February just before the Coronavirus emerged in the UK we have barely had a chance to get off the ground working face to face in schools but we are determined to keep going and so everything has now been diverted to online.
We have developed a full set of resources for English, Maths and Science for Reception through to Year 2 which have been featured by Money Saving Expert in their newsletter and on their Facebook Page. We also have a downloadable Easter Activity Book available now. You can download these from Our new online shop and we are happy to report that they have been downloaded just under 10,000 times already during the two weeks we offered them free of charge. We are now offering all our downloadable resources for the greatly discounted price of 99p, with the aim of sustaining the publishing side of our business whilst offering unique and easy to use resources throughout lockdown.
We have also been chosen by TIDE business banking to be featured across their social media for our efforts to help parents who are trying to get to grips with home schooling.
Our newest initiative is to launch www.thechildrensgazette.online
THE CHILDREN’S GAZETTE is a free downloadable magazine packed full of writing, photography and artwork created by children from across the UK during lockdown. The website has lots of ideas for writing, photography and art projects which can be done easily from home which will be updated regularly.
We are so looking forward to putting this together and have already had some fantastic submissions. We are allowing children to add a message to their grandparents of other family member alongside their submissions so we can recreate a sense of community.
Educompendium can also offer a bespoke study support service for families alongside our free offer as we attempt to maintain some of the usual elements of the business. If you would like further details of how we can help them please do get in touch using our contact form.
