Updating this site

I'm updating - lots of this site was getting very old and clunky.
Other bits still work quite well.
It takes AGES to do it all, and you'll quickly see that some of the pages on this Resource section have the new look, others don't.
I hope that the new ones will gradullay get more and more - but please be patient meanwhile, and if you find any broken links, please let me know.

Teachers & Parents:

There are some links to sites outside this one. When I put them here I checked them all, but obviously I can't constantly check them; they're here in good faith but I can't be responsible for any changes they may make.
If you do meet anything unsuitable here, please let me know. Thanks.
