We have an extensive home-library with numerous other books that we use, or refer to from time to time, for our home-learning but the above books form the main core of our present home-school curriculum.
Websites that we have used in the past and still use occasionally are Starfall and Usborne. We also recently found this great website, Memrise,which is worth exploring – one can learn just about anything. I highly recommend this site.
