Useful websites

1. The National Geographic 
The National Geographic website is full to the brim with a vast amount of information on a whole host of subject areas including the environment, space, animals and even world music. A huge variety of photography is also available and would be great to help with projects and presentations. It’s the perfect resource for your kids if they are interested in all things science and want to learn more about the world that surrounds them.

2. NASA For Kids 
Space buffs are sure to love the NASA for kids website. There is loads of information for children of all ages, with footage from Mars and the International Space Station to interviews with astronauts alongside all the latest news about the most recent space launches and developments. What’s even better is the large variety of games and craft activities younger children get to choose from. They can learn at the same time as having fun- it’s a win win!

3. BBC Primary School 
The BBC’s primary school website is an ideal learning resource for children ages 4-11 years old. What’s great about this website is that it breaks down the curriculum topic by topic, offering a variety of different ways to learn about them. From languages and literacy to history and PSHE- this site really does cover everything!

4. Natural History Museum 
Most major museums have children’s sections on their websites, and this one is definitely one of the most interactive ones out there. There are games and fact files linked with current exhibitions, which makes the information relevant and up-to-date. Alongside this children can virtually visit the museums via the ‘Antcam’ and ‘Flesh eating beetlecam’- cool or what? A brilliant educational resource!
