vocaroo1¬†Vocaroo is a marvellous little online voice recorder program. That’s what it does: you record your voice, then you can send an email to your friends so they can listen to your voice. It’s also going to be ideal for Merlin or My First Place.


Early Years websites October 13, 2008

swindonwiki.pbwiki.com has a special Early Years page which has picture links to a range of websites suitable for young children. Why not put this as your home page, so that children can explore the different sites independently? If they want to go back and choose another site, they will only need to click the Home button. If you have any ideas for sites which should be on this page, please add a comment here.
