DirectGov Kids

Dear ESO students, 
This is a very interesting and useful website on many different topics related to education, health, citizenship, etc. It's highly visual and it's full of games, animations, activities, etc. It's for children from 5 to 11 but I think it's great so why don't have a look.
See you around.
