Just wondered if it would be useful for folk who are facing the task of home schooling had somewhere where they could ask for help? I know a lot of parents are not confident in certain aspects of maths for instance.

Today, although I understand the difference between "equals" and "equivalent" signs, I found it tricky to explain it to my child. Fortunately I have a friend who teaches maths to his age group to help me.

Perhaps a place where we can share resources or ask for a hand with certain concepts from subjects would be handy as it's certainly going to be April, if not September before my children are back at school.

My wife teaches science at a secondary school and has told me about these websites.

Oak academy is a online classroom system set up by the govt with videos of taught lessons about all the main subjects.

Another one is Seneca, (senecalearning.com) again with all sorts of things to look at and do.

I've forgotten exactly what she said they contain and can do but they would be a good place to get some ideas.

I don't know if many people are aware but Microsoft teams can be accesses via x box and PlayStation 4.

Hope this helps.

Written by Charlotte Cunningham

AHDB has issued a yellow rust watch list to help flag winter wheat varieties most likely to perform out of line with the disease ratings published in the Recommended Lists. Charlotte Cunningham reports. The watch list, which orders varieties based on yellow rust levels from the three worst RL trials (for each variety), can help identify those most likely to benefit from closer monitoring, says the levy board. It follows the development of a new rating calculation approach that better reflects the diverse and dynamic nature of the UK’s rust populations, announced at the launch of the online edition of the RL 2021/22 in Dec.
