Much of our knowledge and ideas about the world we live in and the issues we face comes from outside of the classroom. To help broaden your child's (and even your own!) experiences and offer valuable insights into a variety of topics and areas, each subject has come up with a huge wealth of resources ranging from websites, webcam videos, Podcasts, suggestions for research and further reading and many other activities. Please encourage your child to love finding out more than they ever did and expand their horizons beyond the classroom. We hope you can also enjoy discovering even more about the world we live in.
