Websites are a brilliant way to show of some creative ideas. From personal blogs to developments there is something to suit everyone.

There are many different ways to create webpages using your home computer. You may use a web based programme (such as wordpress) which are drag and drop with some coding elements. Or you maybe up to a challenge. Parents you may download expression web free from Microsoft which is a full HTML editor, or you can use notepad to start.


Simply create a folder and inside create a file called index.html to start you off. Any images or new pages must be saved in this folder.

I have used a quick pack for Scouts to learn the basics of HTML and make a very basic website. There is also an example website which Scouts have made previously.

To access these files please visit
