Spreadsheet Modelling - Are you baffled the term 'modelling'? Need some good ready made material? Try this Devon Curriculum Services site.
There are spreadsheet investigations based on well-known mathematical
problems. Sample files (Excel only) may be downloaded. They are an
excellent starting point for the introduction of spreadsheets, helping
pupils gain concepts as they explore what a spreadsheet does.
Our students favourite is The Retiring Headteacher - help the head to spend her
money! The formulae and starting values may be varied, additional rows
inserted, etc. before the pupils embark on designing their own sheet.

Online Activities for Students

   Educational Games and Acitivites

Online activities linked to the Literacy and Numeracy strategies and the new National Curriculum. Primary Resources Site.

Robotics - Y5/6 Control units
Pupils navigate a robotic vehicle over rocky terrain, using the keyboard arrow keys. On the lunar surface, there's a three second delay, due to the time it takes for signal to reach the Moon. The accompanying text gives useful background. There's no opportunity for programming or using sensors, but it provides a good context for discussing robots and the tasks they perform, hence it is directly relevant to the Y5/6 Control units.

A Virtual Tour of a Thai City - Children answer questions whilst exploring a virtual Thai City. Great for a study on Thailand or a lunch time activity in the ICT Suite.

GridClub - GridClub is the official DfEE education portal, designed especially for 7 to 11 year-old children. GridClub is FUN, and it is also the safest site for kids to use at home or school
