Useful websites for children

 

There are a variety of weblinks that you will enjoy and which will support your learning ...and are fun too! These websites may also help you to develop your classroom learning by giving extra information so that you understand the lesson themes better. If you have a favourite learning activities website, use the email contact form (in the Contact Us under Home menu tab), to send us the link. We may include it for others to use too.
