BBC Jam was a free educational online service aimed at 5-16 year olds 1 available from 2006 until 2007 2 via jam.bbc.co.uk. 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 14-162. Plans were initially made for more subjects to be added until September 20082, but following complaints from the commercial sector was suspended in 20071.

BBC Jam is archived via Waybackmachine, but doesn't fully load the site and its assets3. As such, the majority of assets other than a few screenshots are entirely lost.
