The following are some sites deemed to be of educational value for teachers and children. They may be useful in obtaining information for projects, for planning family outings or for accessing web sites that have been identified as suitable for children. You’ll find FREE lesson plans covering a variety of curriculum areas.
The contents of those sites and their subsequent links reflect the views or opinions of the people who run them, not the school. We recommend that whenever children are exploring the internet they do so in a supervised capacity to guide them to appropriate resources and places.
