Wellbeing activities and packs:
Our sites are closed to all visitors, including schools. But with most pupils learning at home, we understood that teachers, parents and carers needed all the help they can get to support them and so we developed our Home Learning Hub. The Home Learning Hub is a growing suite of engaging, curriculum based learning videos and downloadable activities.
Freedom to explore maths:
Students at youcubed summer camp, whose test scores improved by an average of 50% after just 18 days of mindset math, progress equivalent to 2.8 years of school, gave many reasons for their changed achievement: the power of seeing math visually, of knowing that mistakes and struggle are good for brain growth and feeling really liberated by that.

Helping children with worries or anxiety about Coronavirus:
Supporting a child with a mental health problem like depression or anxiety can be really hard and it’s important for a young person to speak to their GP about professional help if they’re struggling. This should be the first step you take if you’re worried a child may have a mental health problem.
