Stand Out sites this week - Week Starting 25th May 2020


Free new Children’s Book from J K Rowling – The Ickabog! 

JK Rowling wrote The Ickabog for her own children years ago but has decided to share it with the world. Releasing new chapters of the book on the website below week by week, (there are two ready to read on the site as we speak) J K Rowling is also inviting young people to help illustrate the story, which will be printed later this year. Read the book, and all about the Illustration Competition, on the link below. (Note, the Ickabog has nothing to do with Harry Potter!) 

Barclays Digital Eagles Coding Sessions for Children 

Learn to Code with Barclay’s Digital Eagles. Their Code Playground sessions are a really fun way to learn the basics and develop digital skills for the future. All available on Youtube, and with no other things necessary except, of course, access to the internet, you can learn to Code in no time. They currently have 14 sessions on their Youtube channel.

London Sealife Centre Live Streams 

With new streams being advertised weekly on the London Sealife Centre’s facebook page, and special events streams (like Turtle streams on World Turtle Day) you can schedule time in to sit back and enjoy the virtual show! The next show is tomorrow, the 28th May, at 2pm, all about Jellyfish! 

Lots of videos to catch up on are also on their Facebook page. See them, and see more about the live streams and when they are, below-
