Educational Resource Websites

Here is a compilation of website resources that can be useful to teachers, parents AND pupils.  Whilst not all are not based in the UK, they can still be beneficial for learning or teaching purposes!

There are quite a few sites that are fun for children to use for their studies and homework.  I hope these will be of use.  If you come across other websites not listed here, please email: parentcouncil@sandersonswynd.elcschool.org.uk
