  • Hi I found this site on Maths very useful

    http://www.amblesideprimary.com/ambleweb/maths.htm

    Lets keep the thread to links for education for all school educated and home educated............. there are a few post here about how disillusioned people feel about teaching in the state sector. These things can become self fulfilling if we are not careful.

    Many / most state schools are really excellent and whilst there is always room for improvement this is more likely to come about with a positive approach to school life and their achievements.

    If people are disillusion then careers advice should quietly rightly be sort ……………. perhaps on another thread ?
    Kind regards

    Many state schools are really good and whilst there is always room for improvement this is more likely to come about with a positive approach to school life and children’s achievements. These links will certainly help.

    If people are disillusion then careers advice should quietly rightly be sought …………….might be best though on another thread?

    I wanted to post all the websites I use in school....but seems they are not such a closely guarded secret of mine afterall!

    There are some fabulous websites out there and as a teacher I use a fair few during the course of my day to day classes.

    These are some I don't think I have seen mentioned already. They are fab for handwriting!

    There is a good one - while most of the links are American based websites there are some good sites listed for thousands of printable exercise sheets for all ages & stages... They do change regularly so if you find a site that is useful then make sure you add it to you favourites as you won't be be able to find it again!!
    http://www.sitesforparents.com/index.html
    Also downloadable fonts for handwriting, interactive exercises, games & songs/rhymes - even menu ideas!

    Another American one but a goodie - especially for phonics is http://www.starfall.com/index.htm

    My daughter started learning French and Spanish in nursrey and http://www.nickjr.com/ has a number of Dora Printables & games that help with her Spanish

    And for kids ebooks http://www.tumblebooks.com/library/asp/home_tumblebooks.as
    (In English, Spanish & French) with games, puzzles, redable books & Audio books...

    There is also http://www.familyeducation.com/home/ which has loads of ideas for everything from, again, printables to menu ideas to entertainment ideas to mesage boards so compare notes...

    Another index type site with loads of links is http://www.internet4classrooms.com/parents.htm

    Most of these are American but there are still some very useful bits & pieces to be found!!

    This all of the main ones that I can think of will add any further links that spring to mind!! And apologies if I am repeating any...;)

    And just a quickie...

    http://www.thebookpeople.co.uk type 'Oxford Learning' into the search field and it will bring up a number of packs (10-15 books) that they do (each pack ranges between £7-£10) of the Oxford Learning Tree Readers...

    They also regularly have packs of those Letts type exercise book packs (usually works out just over a quid for each book - which in other retailers I have spent the best part of £3 for)!!

    My children and I used this as one of the ways to revise the dreaded but essential times tables. For each table 1 - 12 there are 3 speeds. You set it running and try to say the answer before it flashes on the screen. They are all in different fonts which somehow makes them stick better. There are also random tests. We'd answer alternately or see who could shout the answer first. Dear me, we sound like a family of 'boffs'....

    It's a subscription site, but I would recommend www.clickteaching.com to anyone. Well worth the £20 a year.
  • You could try www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk as there is some good stuff in both english and in welsh. Other regions also have ngfl sites.

    I love this site and it is great to use with children. It is well organised and most links work.

    So anything maths related try this site - lots of good fun games to try - I sometimes get sidetracked by them when I'm trying to plan my lessons.
