It's not just Olympic sports that you can find on LearnEnglish Kids. You'll find lots of activities about other sports too. Children can learn about some extreme sports, and meet Buzz, a busy bee who loves being active! Join her on her adventure holiday, and listen to a song about the things that she loves doing!

We are pleased to say that the poetry competition will return later this year in partnership with the Children's Poetry Bookshelf. The competition will feature a category for children aged 7-11 who are learning English as a second or foreign language. The topic this year will be 'work'. The competition opens in September but you can begin to write your poems now if you feel inspired! You can find more details on this page.
