More games coming…


So pleased to see that you are finding our free switch games useful. In the last month our online games have been played tens of thousands of times in schools and in children’s homes. In the coming weeks we’ll be adding some new switch and touch screen games and redesigning the starting page to make it a little more student friendly. We hope your students enjoy them.
