What We Like

At Skills School we are keen to share the good work and resources of other organisations, where we feel it will benefit your learning. Below is a list of websites and resources that we've been impressed by recently...

DEVELOPING READING, WRITING AND SPELLING FOR FIVE TO ELEVEN YEAR OLDS

This Directgov article has some great advice and tips for parents looking to support their child's reading, writing and spelling development at home.

BBC BITESIZE

We're not sure there is anyone left out there that hasn't heard about or used the BBC Bitesize website. It's a fantastic resource covering Key Stage 1, 2, 3 and GCSE work in English, Maths and Science. If your child is revising for an important exam or simply looking for an activity to help bring a subject to life, then get them over to this site.

COOL READS

This website provides reviews for books for 10-15 year old readers, with one major difference; the books are reviewed by 10-15 year old readers. The site is still in its early days but has already amassed over 2500 reviews. Your child can sign-up and then review the books they've been reading, providing an overview and a star rating. You can always count on children to provide an honest opinion and this is something that really sets this review website apart.
