Safe Internet Research

Have you tried using for internet research with your class?

It’s a ‘safe search’ tool that’s also a lot less overwhelming for children than a normal Google display page.

You can even custom build a search page for your class or school….

There is also Simon Haughton’s brilliant ‘KS1 encyclopedia’ which is a great way for children to explore safely through various topics such as: castles, superheroes, Florence Nightingale and plants.

If anyone is interested in how to progress internet research skills from yrs 1-6 then the wonderful Mr Haughton also has a great blog post about it ‘Progression in internet research’

Including planning guides for each year group which is so helpful!
