    Holy Family Senior School
    had lots to say about their favourite sites:

    http://www.wildireland.ie/
    - This is an excellent and varied site suitable for fourth fifth and sixth classes. It publishes students nature poems, reviews books and websites, has an online magazine, and a library of information on Irish wildlife. Some entries here are of better quality than others. It provides weather information and archive information on previous months weather. It also hosts special projects such as the exploits of the Jackdaw who hatched on a Dublin chimney. It also has a threaded discussion forum, dealing in environmental issues, which may be of interest to some of the older students. Younger pupils at Holy Family Junior really enjoyed watching the Jackdaws in the chimney.

    http://www.birdwatchireland.ie/working_with_birds/index.html
    - This is a site dealing with Irish birds. It contains a list of 20 projects suitable for primary school, and integrating geography (weather; map reading) science history and craft. It provides printable grids to record information. It also has teachers' notes. Two links from this site could be used by fifth and sixth class students to research materials on birds. These are The Birdwatch Ireland link and The Migration link. These contain easily read and attractively laid out information accompanied by bird graphics.

    http://www.stemnet.nf.ca/CITE/vikings.htm - This is a resource page on the Vikings, providing links to sites dealing with all aspects of the Vikings such as folklore, clothes, voyages, jewellery, society etc. Some of the links are suitable for third or fourth classes, but others are more difficult. The links are published by Canadian, Norwegian, Sweedish and Danish schools and so are a source of different viewpoints.

    http://www.harrythecat.com/
    This is a site which could be used by multimedia authors and web designers who haven't time to make their own graphics. It has a large collection of animated graphics which are classified for ease of use. It has also a collection of buttons and signs. It allows use of its resources as long as the use is not for commercial gain.
