Make learning fun with Education Quizzes

It goes without saying that a good education is paramount for children. I think it’s really important to be able to further support their learning at home too because they may need a little extra help in certain areas. We are really lucky that we live in an area surrounded by great schools and the ones the boys attend have an outstanding Ofsted rating.

E is currently in Year 2 and loves going to school. He enjoys learning new things and is regularly telling me random facts he has learnt. The school are big on reading and encourage them to read at least 10 minutes at home every day. On top of this, he will have homework a couple of times a month which we usually help him with over the weekend.

We have been taking a look at Education Quizzes this week to see if this would make learning at home a little different and more interesting. I have to confess I’m not the most patient of teachers at home so anything that would help make learning at home more fun would be a real benefit.

About Education Quizzes

Education Quizzes aims to do just that. It’s based on the National Curriculum and aims to support learning at home through a variety of fun quizzes that are written by teachers and tailored to curriculums different Key Stages. Once you have clicked onto the correct stage for your child (E is Key Stage 2), the website is then broken down by subject. For example, Art and Design, English, Geography and Maths.

I think E has followed in my footsteps and needs a little helping hand in the Maths department so we logged on to take a look at what was available. The website is really user-friendly and we found the section we were looking for straight away. I really like the idea of answering quiz questions. It instantly seems like less of a chore when you are on the computer and also lets E get used to using a computer rather than using tablets all the time.

How much does it cost?

A subscription to Education Quizzes costs £9.95. There is also a subscription that is available for schools which can work out to be as little as £2 per student for the whole year. The latter would be a great option for those who don’t necessarily have the spare cash each month for their own subscription.

Education Quizzes have some sample test papers available to use as a practice with an option to buy further papers for £2.99 which I think will be really useful for E as he has SATS coming up towards the end of this school year.

Overall, I believe that Education Quizzes is a really useful resource for parents that will enable their children to learn at home the fun way.

  1. Sounds great. My eldest is in Year 2 and about to do SATS: I don’t think I’d use this for him but when he is older I think it would be fab #KCACOLS

  2. we’re not quite there yet but little man starts school in sept and this sounds ideal! #KCACOLS

  3. This is actually really interesting and not as expensive as I thought Ithat would be #kcacol

  4. We have a similar thing here for maths but I’m not 100% on board with everything being done on the computer…I think a little pen and paper work is good for them #KCACOLS

  5. My daughter’s school subscribe to a few educational sites that she can then use at home. I find it a good compromise when she wants to go onto my computer – it’s ok for a while if she’s learning something rather than watch someone opening kinder eggs for hours on end! #KCACOLS

  6. I do miss using educational computer games and quizzes for the kids. Over here in Paris it’s very old fashioned, lots of rote learning, memorising poems, conjugating verbs and spelling. And homework every day! #kcalcols

  7. My son likes us to come up with sums for him to do so this would be good for that, not sure I’d pay for a subscription though as I don’t think we’d get enough use out of it to justify the cost. Maybe in the future though x

  8. Great idea Maria. The kids always seem to respond well to these online quizzes rather than a sheet of paper with 20 questions on!! Our daughters school have several packages that the children can use for getting their work done and practice #KCACOLS

  9. I think this would be ideal in a year or so time when mine are a littl older! Kids seem to respond so much more to the computer than paper! #KCACOLS

  10. sounds good for older children who are nearing a SAT year…but i do feel sad that our education system needs things like this to help…id much rather see all years doing more ‘hands on’ and ‘fun’ learning based on real life scenarios x #kcacols

  11. I think anything like this that helps kids to learn is a great thing. In a world where more and more is online this is just what is needed.

  12. That is a great idea. Thanks for sharing this find. #KCACOLS

  13. Mine are a little young for that yet but I like the concept. #kcacols

  14. Looks really interesting, and anything that helps make learning fun and interactive like that is a good idea in my book! x #KCACOLS

  15. All the help my boys can get is good as far as I’m concerned. I like a range of different ways for them to learn and technology is so in touch with children now that its good to have these resources at hand.

  16. This looks great and very inspirational to get children to learn. Will definitely be looking into these in years to come. #KCACOLS

  17. I’m so out of touch with the education system in the UK. Homework a couple of times a month sounds okay – in Mexico kids from age 4 are usually getting homework twice a week! It’s too much. Anyway, it sounds like this resource could be a useful tool. Learning should always be fun! #KCACOLS

  18. This looks good. I definitely find that quizzes and games work well #KCACOLS

  19. This sounds so great!! #KCACOLS
