Crickweb Links


We aim to provide a growing list of the best links to useful interactive teaching resources suitable for use on IWB's in class and PC's in school or at home.
Additionally we have built a list of links to valuable free software.

The links are split by subject or type, please use the relevant sub menu.
Please tell us if any of the links don't work using the Contact button.

If you know of good web sites offering interactive resources that we don't link to, please let us know and we will try to include them.
Please note that although we check the suitability of the sites we link to, we do not have any control over them and therefore cannot guarantee their content, suitability and availability.

CBeebies Grown-ups Show your child how exciting and useful numbers and counting can be.
Maths comes into almost every area of our lives - from looking at the number on a house or sorting socks into pairs, to splitting the cost of a meal in a restaurant or working out the best mortgage or mobile phone deal.
We can harness the curiosity children have for the world around them, and show them how exciting and useful numbers and counting can be.

"There is so much conflicting advice about nutrition and most people don't know what to believe, or how to change their habits to benefit them personally. Nutritionist Resource seeks to bring together all the latest advice from qualified/registered nutritionists to ensure the public is aware of the positive changes good nutrition can bring, and provide information, advice and support."

Need a safe way for your Year Three's to send and receive emails? Try Kidscapism Simulated Email System.
"It is an internal, teacher controlled, secure, web-based email system. It is essentially a simulation of a real email situation, but without young children having to have external email addresses."

Another great site for links and education news and info is I Can Teach

Just launched is Cyber Kidz, an English version of a Dutch school resources site.
"The Cyberkidz Games are developped with concepts of education and entertainment, which we call edutainment: learning by playing.
Perfect for using in the classroom with a smartboard or touchscreen, but Cyberkidz can also be played individual by the children. At school or at home."
