As a Primary school teacher and the ICT co-ordinator (Newland St. John's C. E. Primary in Hull, U.K.) I have spent many hours searching the internet for useful free programs to help children with their educational progress while still having fun. Many of these are installed and run successfully on our RM CC3 network. The links you see will, hopefully, take you to interesting sites that will allow you to enjoy the good programs that I have found.

It would be appreciated if you tell me of any links that are not working or of any free programs that you have found and want to share. Please send an email to     

NEW!  PIVOT Pivot Stickfigure Animator makes it easy to create stick-figure animations. You can build your own stick figures and load your own backgrounds. Children of all ages just love this small but highly effective program. Try it--I know that you'll just love it!

An ideal program to help with downloading is FRESH DOWNLOAD v7 (1.3Mb). It will continue when a download has been interrupted and will download several parts of a large file at the same time (the default setting is 4 connections but this can be increased to 8 simultaneous connections). Fresh Download

PhotoFiltre v6 is a great photo and paint program:  2.2 MB in size. Go to the ENGLISH page and select the DOWNLOAD link from the main page to download the English version and enjoy!

Children who attend NSJ (or teachers in the U.K.) can contact me about buying a CDROM full of these programs for  2. Please contact me. It is a charity based in Beverley (Jacob's Well) helping children in Afghanistan, Romania and similar countries with both medical and educational aid.
