Having 3 children of varying ages and educational interests means finding online software and apps to entertain all of them can be really hard. I also know from experience that given the option to partake in extra curricular learning without a computer really isn't going to happen! Screen-time is so limited in our house that any chance to be on a tablet or computer is greatly appreciated even if it involves maths! I was recently asked to give Education Quizzes a go. Education Quizzes primary goal is to help children to be successful at school. With quizzes ranging from KS1 all the way through to GCSE across the curriculum meaning theres something for your little mathematicians, history buffs or those more interested in sports.
All the quizzes are written by teachers, there is a monthly subscription fee of £9.95 which can be cancelled at any time. Being as the quizzes are multiple choice they are far more engaging and interactive as oppose to the children having to write or type answers. Which I for one know Charlie would not be keen on! Multiple choices also provide the child with the opportunity to work out the answer for themselves. I can see these being great revision prep for the 11+ and GSCE's.
Education Quizzes are however conscious of the fact that not every parent can afford a monthly subscription. They therefore have devised a way that incorporates schools. Your child's school can pay on behalf of the students and benefit from greatly reduced costs. Depending on the number of students at a school, it is possible for them to sign-up students for as little as £2.00 per year. Most schools local in Dorset do this with the Mathletics Scheme so it's not unheard of. Personally the huge variety of core subjects available makes Education Quizzes a one stop website instead of having to dip into one for maths, one for literacy etc.
