Gamequarium

The Gamequarium is a site that “swims with learning fun”. Drill down the categories to find LOTS of resources for children to use for learning, either independently or supported. I can see myself returning to this site again and again.

Alphablocks – early literacy games

leave a comment »

The games on CBeebies Alphablocks (from the BBC) can help with early stage literacy, as the child forms words using the available letters or watches the songs letters sing.

Maths Dictionary

leave a comment »

Jenny Eather has created a rather useful site for kids to learn and understand about different basic terms in maths. It’s called A Maths Dictionary for Kids.

MATHD

Such a colourful, visually engaging site, with a clickable alphabet on the left leading to the different maths terms beginning with that letter. Upon choosing a term from the dictionary you’ll see a definition and some sums to do allowing you to test and develop your understanding.
