Websites for children

A few parents have asked about which websites we use at school to help the children with their learning. I have put together a list of websites that we use and ones that have been recommended by other people. The content of some of these sites does change quite frequently so it is difficult to always be sure of the quality but have a go and see which ones your children enjoy. We understand that not everyone has access to the internet but it is also available at local libraries.

General sites

www.bbc.co.uk/schools

www.bbc.co.uk/education/dynamo

These are all general sites that have lots of interactive games covering many different subjects.

www.exploratorium.edu/science_explorer/index.html Some great ideas for fun and probably rather messy, child friendly science investigations

History

www.history.com/exhibits/toys This is the history channel’s website which gives information about toys

www.ancientegypt.co.uk This is the British museum’s website all about ancient Egypt. It is more suitable for older children but has lots of good pictures of pharaohs and mummies.
