What is DynaMo?

Dynamic learning with DynaMo helps put learning into practice! DynaMo is an exciting home learning service for children aged 5 - 9 across TV programmes, books, videos and the Internet, and will help you as a parent to get involved in your child's learning as you join in the activities and games together. All the activities have been created in line with curriculum needs and are designed to complement your child's school work in Maths, English, Science and History.

The DynaMo website features a wide range of interactive, on-screen games to help children with literacy and numeracy in DynaMo's Den and fun science games, and experiments to print off and try, in DynaMo's Lab. The site also includes an at-a-glance guide to all of the DynaMo home learning resources.
