Helping Children Learn With Education Quizzes

Lil Miss S, started school last September. Since starting she has come on in leaps and bounds with her writing and drawing. Infact the other evening we went in to school for parents evening to hear and see how she was getting on… her teacher said her creative side is amazing and that her painting and drawing skills are fantastic for her age. Which of course put a huge smile on our face.

That said she did also mention that Lil Miss S maths skills could maybe do with a bit of extra help, particularly when it comes to 3D shapes. Her teacher said they would keep working with her on her maths in school, but that also maybe we could try to encourage it a bit more at home too.

We were therefore grateful when we were introduced to Education Quizzes and we quickly logged on to start exploring their wonderful website. Education Quizzes is a subscription based website for kids, parents and even teachers.  The idea behind the  Education Quizzes website is to help children be more successful at school by quizzing them on subjects, as it can help make learning seem more easy and fun rather than a chore.

The quizzes on the website are all split into different stages dependent on age, so for us we clicked on KS1 which is aimed at 5-7 year olds. Each stage covers a variety of different subjects and there are quizzes to cover each one. All the quizzes on the website have in fact been wrote by teachers, which is relaxing for us parents to know that our kids are learning/being quizzed by someone who 100% knows about this stuff.

The website has lots of wonderful topics to choose from however,  the subject we chose first was Maths. As I mentioned earlier this is the area  Lil Miss S has been struggling with, so we decided to start working our way through the Math sections, starting with 2D and 3D shapes.

Each of the questions was actually really unique. We have tried a few other websites before to help with with Lil Miss S’s learning, however nothing has managed to keep her engaged as much as this. The questions on each subject were  fun and revel-event and accompanied by a picture which usually helped her to answer it. Every time she got a question right, the look on her face was pure happiness.

Education Quizzes for right from KS1 all the way to GCSE. The website is a monthly subscription costing £9.95, however it can be cancelled at any time. There are also some great incentives for Schools to pay Education Quizzes on behalf of the students for as little as £2 per child per year and benefit from it greatly.

Although we haven’t been using Education Quizzes very long, I’ve already started to notice a difference. Not only have my little girls math skills been improving but her confidence too. Before she use to doubt herself when answering a question, even when most the time she actually had the right answer. Now shes definitely a lot more sure of herself when answering a question. We can’t wait to start exploring some of the other subjects on the website and trying out the different stages as she grows up.

    Extra help with children is always a bonus, and if it is fun for them they are going to enjoy it much more. The monthly subscription is a little off putting, personally for me, but I can see that being irrelevant if this were a worthwhile bonus for your child.

    This is a really interesting article that I’m going to pass on to a few friends currently training to become teachers. Very well written too.

    These sound great for building confidence. I could have done with something like this as a child

    This is definitely something I’d consider when Matthew is at junior school to help support the curriculum and prepare him for tests. His current school uses a maths website for homework which he gets on well with.

    I think it’s great how these programmes make learning fun. I always said my kids learn more when they are enjoying it!

    This looks really good. I find it so hard to motivate my kids to do any extra work outside of school. Doing it online would be great for them, as all they want to do is play on Ipads anyway!

    My daughter is too young for this site, but it looks really good!

    Confidence is the first battle, isn’t it! So nice that it looks fun to do.
