Book Inside You by Richard Walker. Dorling Kindersley pound;12.99.

A wonderful tour of how the body functions. The novel diagrams and text in the book work with the animations on the free disc to give a clear idea of what happens when the body reacts to a cut or bee sting.

CD-Rom KS3 Physics Overview on CD (Focus, Licences from pound;29.95 plus VAT

Excellent animations of physics principles, from movements in the solar system to electric motors. Great for whiteboards.

Website Astronomy for Kids: Great sky maps, and my 13-year-olds enjoyed using the planet data to make displays and PowerPoints. Links to other good resources.

Astronomy Picture of the Day http:antwrp.gsfc.nasa.govapodastropix.html. This brilliant collection of photos inspires pupils to ask "What's that?" Great stimulus material for the whiteboard with information on pictures.
