Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors,
we borrow it from our Children.

I’ve just been contacted about a new website aimed at Key stage 2, I’ve not really looked at it myself as it’s a bit advanced for Rye; but might be of interest to others?

We just found this yesterday and my son loves it - all subjects, all levels, it’s really great http://www.studyladder.co.uk/

Bumping!! Have only just found this thread as I came on to suggest something similar!

Despite having had it pinned for a while, we’ve just discovered storynory which Sarah has linked to above, and thought it might be useful as there’s a few Christmas/wintery themed stories on there, and the quality of the audio’s is brilliant.

I know we have pinterest now but to be honest it can get really overwhelming sometimes…does anyone fancy keeping this list updated…if we just add a link/suggestion every now and then it might make an additional and useful resource to pinterest.  What do you think?
