Have you been set some research homework by your teacher? Do you know where to look? Below are a number of websites which have helpful information for you to read through. There are also revision websites so you can make sure you are ready for any tests that are going on in school.
This website is packed with information about all things Geographic and Scientific. Take a look at country profiles, see stunning images of jungles or watch videos of penguins in their natural habitat.
The Science Museum has a great section with information about different subjects like transport, computers and more. There are also links to different objects in the museum, as well as the latest science news.
The Natural History Museum has a kids section with lots of information on dinosaurs, as well as other living things. Watch the museum's live webcams and flesh-eating beetles live at work!
Use this website to help when revising for any tests in English, Maths or Science. Aimed at Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. It has lots of games and activities to help you learn what you need to, when you need to.
For year 1 and 2 to revise and practise their learning. Also great for older pupils who want to make sure they have the basics. There are English and Maths activities on here as well as games.
Newsround is a BBC News website for children. There are lots of videos and articles to help you keep up-to-date on what is going on in the world around you. Sections include sport, entertainment, animals and news.
NOTE: While we have taken time to pick out websites that we see suitable and safe for our children, Mereside CE Primary School is not responsible for the content found on these sites.
