Summer Learning with The Night Zookeeper

I am guessing if you are here reading this review your kiddos are a little like mine, easily bored and love an app to keep the boredom at bay. And then I am gonna take a guess that you are a little like me and that although you don't mind screen time and tablets you would rather that the majority of apps and games they play had some sort of educational value. If this sounds like you and your kids then the Night Zoo Keeper is for you...

Night Zookeeper is a children’s education company with a BAFTA-nominated website, as well as a series of adventure books, and an animated show on Sky TV. The website provides thousands of literacy games and lessons designed to motivate and excite children to learn, whilst developing their writing ability and creative thinking skills.

The more new words they learn and stories they write, the more points they win in a global league table with children from around the world. On signing up your child is provided with login details to get going and then they are set their first task, design their zoo keeper avatar using the paint tool box. (Evie found this quite hard on the laptop and I wonder if maybe on a tablet it would be easier?) They then move on to create their unique animal. Evie was tasked with designing a penguin come rabbit and I helped her create the image she had in her head. A black and white penguin body with rabbit ears, whiskers, a pink beak and big rabbit feet, joined like a penguin so it can waddle along!!

Your child's writing skills are then put to use, by adding short sentences about the animal they have created. With tips to perfect their writing skills as they go along. Hints like 'Remeber names have capital letter at the begining.' and 'sentences end with a full stop'. These really helped Evie and she remembered everything she was learning as she went.  Once done they have the chance to edit their writing and earn more orbs by following some extra goals given like add some adjectives, or add some verbs.

The Night Zookeeper's main portal contains a varitey of games based on English and grammar, such as Word Climb, Volcano Word Hop and Sentence Dash as well as lessons to complete. I would highly recommend this website for anyone who want to encourage creativity, imagination, learning and assist with reading and writing throughout the summer holidays and beyond.

There is really so much to keep every child busy for the whole of the summer.  If you would like to get your child involved with Night Zoo Keeper use the code ‘lovewriting’ for a 30% discount.

  1. It's a great program for kids isn't it? My children have loved getting to grips with building their own zoo of imaginary creatures :)
