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.[3] Plans were initially made for more subjects to be added until September 2008,[4] but following complaints from the commercial sector was suspended in 2007.[5]

BBC Jam is archived via Waybackmachine, but doesn't fully load the site and its assets.[6] As such, the majority of assets other than a few screenshots are entirely lost.
