Make Learning Fun with Education Quizzes

23 October 2017

It is a well known fact that if we enjoy a subject at school, we will more than likely excel in that specific area of knowledge.  So what happens if you struggle to grasp things? On one hand Gee has excellent English skills but really struggles with numbers, therefore maths and science can be hard work and I cannot recall how many times Gee has had a meltdown because she does not grasp what is being asked. She is currently awaiting a diagnosis for ASD and transition into Year 8 has been a bit of a struggle therefore any extra help is gladly received.



We were recently asked to try the Education Quizzes website which has been written by teachers. Each quiz helps to support the national curriculum whether your children are KS1, KS2, 11-plus, KS3 or at GCSE level and aims to make learning fun but educational.

On the home page Gee clicked on the link for quizzes aimed for her year group. This took her through to a page with all the KS3 subjects.  Everything from Art and Design through to Spelling is covered and each subject has numerous quizzes linked to certain areas of the curriculum.



Gee started by looking at some of the Maths quizzes in the KS3 section, although daunting to her, surprisingly she found she could relate to her answers, even if they were wrong, as a full explanation was given underneath. This helped to clarify any mistakes she had made and avoid confusion, but also reinforcing her correct answers.



Education Quizzes is a monthly subscription service that can give the whole family support around the curriculum for £9.95 per month. There are even dedicated parent pages giving invaluable information. This subscription can be cancelled at anytime, so if you wanted to use it for exam revision, then this is also possible. I honestly think that if schools were to provide access to these valuable resources for all children, it not only would be a benefit, but also reinforce what they are being taught in school.



If like Gee you are interested in nature then the Nature Matters blog is a great read with new posts published daily, featuring lizards, insects, plants and one of my favourites the Barn Owl.

As a parent of a child who sometimes finds learning difficult, this is a great way of having bite size pieces of information 10 minutes at a time, Gee's concentration is much improved in short bouts. The thing I love about Education Quizzes is that it helps me to support Gee and have a bit of fun whilst learning something new, after all, parents don't know the answer to everything.

This is a collaborative post.

  1. Education Quizzes is something I wish I had growing up when I was at school. Kids are FAR more likely to retain information I find when it is presented to them in an interactive way such as a quiz!

  5. I think this is a must for children of school-age. My daughter does Doodle Maths courtesy of her school on her laptop. Not familiar with these education quizzes, but I'm liking what I'm seeing!
