BBC Jam was a free educational online service aimed at 5-16 year olds[1] available from 2006 until 2007 via jam.bbc.co.uk.[2] BBC Jam contained animations, games, activities, and audio in line with the UK curriculum at the time. Topics included Maths, English, Science and History for ages 5-7, English, Science, Geography, Religious Education and Music for ages 7-9, History, Physical Education and Citizenship for ages 9-11, Geography, Design and Technology and French for ages 11-14 and Business Studies and Financial Capability for ages 14-16. Plans were initially made for more subjects to be added until September 2008, but following complaints from the commercial sector was suspended in 2007.
