Great list!

I also have a somewhat older list of French media resources that might contain a useful link or two. Feel free to steal anything you wish. :-)

Many thanks for the great work.

Tatoeba
https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentences/search?query=sur+le+champ%3A%09%09%09%09%09%09&from=fra&to=eng

be useful additions?

Also I would be grateful to learn if there are any other websites out there that give good explanations when correcting my grammar such as with Bon Patron.

Thanks again.

CNED, which I think is a little like the UK's Open University, a gov't backed distance learning organisation, offers a syllabus, and in some cases text book PDFs for various subjects for primary and secondary schools.

French language resources for french children would be:

Ecole
CP (6 year olds)
CE1 (7)
CE2 (8)
CM1 (9)
CM2 (10)

Collège
Cinquième
Quatrième
Troisième

Lycée
Seconde
Première L
Première ES
Première S

French schools year/grades explained on Wikipedia.
