Education Quizzes Help Your Child Do Well In School

One of the things my Mother taught me from a young age was the value of Education. My parents didn’t get the best education opportunities. Dad left school young and Mum planned to go to college but got married and had kids instead.

*This is a Collaborative Post With Education Quizzes.

Not having the best education opportunities did not stop my parents from learning. They learnt in other ways and developed skills which they have passed on to me and my siblings. My parents also taught me to get the best education I could.

We had little money but mum helped me with homework, she taught me all she knew and encouraged me and my sister to get good grades. In fact my parents saved money each year and we were rewarded with different amounts of cash depending on the grades we got.

I went on to become a Early Years teacher and my sister became a Doctor. We both won scholarships and were in local newspapers, Deborah for her masters research and me for my role in an out of school reading program to help children who were struggling with literacy and reading skills.

I guess my experiences have naturally lead me down a path where I value education and all I want now is for my daughter to learn all she can and achieve at each stage of learning. Sylvia is currently is Key Stage Two. She has homework weekly and also likes to play on the computer.

I’ve been looking into options and ways to help Sylvia learn more, boost her opportunities and have fun at the same time. I have just this week discovered Education Quizzes. This educational website is a great opportunity to help kids learn and answer questions relevant to the Key Stage they are currently at.

Education Quizzes are written by School Teachers and the primary objective is to help children to be successful at school. They include the study of the school curriculums and cover content in  KS1, KS2, 11-Plus, KS3 as well as having GCSE level quizzes.

When I was studying at high school, I purchased study guides with quizzes and these really helped me to practice and to prepare for exams. The guides were invaluable. We didn’t really use the internet back then and so having study quizzes online is clearly a progression from what I had as a student.

So what do I think about these quizzes for pupils. I logged into the site and took a good look. The quizzes at Key Stage 2 level cover a lot of subjects from geography, to ITC, to Citizenship and Music. All subjects are covered not just English and Maths. I think this is really great and the quizzes also look fun too.

To sign up to Education Quizzes it costs £9.95 a month. There is also an option for school to subscribe at a much cheaper rate which is a fantastic option and could give access to families who may not otherwise be able to afford it.

So if you have time why not pop by and take a look at the site? I’ll leave with this Youtube video explaining a little more about the Education Quizzes website and how it can help your child.

  1. This looks like a great program for kids. My son is out of school now, but I know he would’ve enjoyed the extra work when younger. He was always wanting to do more.

  2. This sounds like such a great resource! Kids really need to continually test themselves to stay on track. This is such a great way to assess how they are doing in school, and if they are comprehending the work.

  3. I value education as well and I worked hard to get my kids into good schools and get the education that they need. I think these quizzes are awesome and they’re definitely going to help parents and kids.

    1. they are good and I think they could benefit my daughter. We had parents evening last night and the teacher thought they were a great idea!

    1. I’m sure the quizzes would help any child especially the maths and english ones, although the geography and history ones might be different.

  4. This is a great tool for parents. Education is so important and anyway you can help ensure your kids are really learning and retaining is worthwhile.

  5. I have never heard of these quizzes before, but our kids do a lot of quizzes at school, so they probably use these there – I know quizzes can help strengthen the understanding of school subjects and specific topics, and we sometimes use quizzes at home to help our kids with their reviews.
