We are celebrating the one year anniversary of releasing our Homework Help For Kids app. And because of this, we need to make some changes. Our new features will be:
– translated pages (into Chinese, etc.)
– more relevant Geography content.
– more Maths content.
We will also have a new user interface (Amazon only)
A bot is a computer program that you can “talk” with. There are many platforms that allow you to host bots and reach the public with including Messenger.
Why are we making a bot?
We’re always trying to find new ways to help you with your piles of homework. Unlike the app, it is more personal and responds to your questions as if a human was typing at a really fast speed.
The only downside is, to use the bots, you have to be connected to the internet. So, you can use the bot when you’re at home and the app when you’re on holiday to Barbados! (Or anywhere, really.)
How can I access the bot?
It’s easier than you think. All you need is:
A Facebook account (if you don’t have one, use your parents. Remember to ask them first, though!)
A web browser
That’s it! You can do this on any internet-enabled device without having to install any external apps. (If you do have the Facebook Messenger app, then go to the search box and search “homework help.” Look for the red dotted H and tap on it.)
If you don’t have the Facebook Messenger app, don’t worry. Just follow the video below:
There’s also another method on how to do it. This involves typing in the link
What homework can the bot currently help me with?
We’re still programming it at the moment, but it can currently help you with:

Below is the full playlist:
Fascinating Facts PRO customers: All facts will be added to the app at the end of April.
We all know the rhyme: divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived. We all know who the wives were: Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleeves, Katherine Howard and Katherine Parr. But, do we know what went on behind the scenes? Of course not. And why was Anne Boleyn’s marriage to Henry so private? And what did Henry do to Catherine after he divorced her? All will be revealed in this blog post.
Happy 2017, everyone! It’s New Years Day, and we want to look back on 2016 for a few moments. Celebrities | On this day… |

New Year Resolutions
Last year, you may haven’t been the best on doing homework and giving it in on time. Well, this year, we’re here to help you do your homework, get it in on time and to help you get full marks. Watch this video:
Christmas Day has passed (although Christmas isn’t officially over yet) and enter the Boxing Day Sales. Yes. But although the online retailers started theirs on Christmas Day, the physical ones always start on Boxing Day.
By reading that line, you might think, “They’ve gone insane.” We haven’t.
As you loaded up this website, you may have noticed that there’s a green padlock in the corner. This means that anything you send to us via this website (email addresses etc) is encrypted without you having to do anything.
Our website has been live for 82 days (as of the 17th November) and we have noticed that, if you have a low broadband speed, then the page could take some time to load. But, you’ve obviously been patient enough to wait for the page to load. That’s why we’ve come up with a solution: a brand-new homepage. Try it out on desktop. | Try it out on mobile and tablet.
Remembrance Day is a time to remember those who died in fighting our country in any war. The majority of celebrities wear them on TV and in public to show their respect for soldiers who died whilst fighting. But poppies have been in the news recently and not for a good reason. Poppies in the news

Last week, we went to the famous annual Dartmouth Food Festival. There were many stalls there selling all kinds of food including some familiar brands such as Burts Crisps, which are actually made in Devon.
What was going on there?
Many local food suppliers turned up and put their food on display so people could buy it. Many had special offers on! Anyway, here are some pictures we took there:

Different kinds of food
The smells of the food festival were magnificent. You could smell the spicy chilli con carnie and the cooking meat from miles away. Not literally, though.
As well as exploring the Dartmouth Food Festival, we also came across many people who were crabbing.
What is crabbing?
Crabbing is when you catch crabs using bait (we used ham) and a special net as well as a bucket. Most coastal towns will sell this equipment in shops. You release the crabs once you’re finished, of course.
Moving away from the food festival… and the crowds… you can see the beautiful views of the town just opposite Dartmouth.
No, we’re not talking about the viruses that make you sick. We’re talking about the ones that can mess up your computer, tablet or phone and access all your data. But that’s not all we’re talking about today. We’re talking about fake emails that will try to get yours (or parent’s) bank details or other sensitive information.
