There has been significant generosity shown by many within the education sector to support the continued education of children around the world whilst schools are closed. Below is a list of the resources I’ve found which might be of interest to others:

JCS are an aggregator of online resources and are providing free access to many of the resources including a big bank of educations videos

Audible have pulled together a collection of audiobooks, including books for all age groups, and a bank of classic literature. In addition they have books in French, German, Spanish, Italian and Japanese!
