Can anyone recommend any online science programs, like Reading Eggs is for Reading, I'm after something similar for Primary School Science? My DS has an unquenchable thirst for science!!

Have you had a look at studyladder.com.au
My DS1 was just given his account details from school this week, so I haven't had a chance to log on and look at it properly, but I noticed they had science as well as literacy, numeracy etc and a whole bunch of other subjects (10 in total). I've got no idea on the cost or if it's any good just yet!!

No suggestions on programs of that kind, but there are some fantastic documentaries around. Brian Cox has done some that appeal to kids I know... or David Attenborough documentaries.
How's his reading ability? Howstuffworks or Wikipedia are fantastic for reading about all kinds of interesting topics. Dr Karl has a LOT of books covering a broad range of topics - some of which are quite accessible to kids. There's also a great book (though slightly outdated now) called A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson... it's been adapted into a kids' reference book called A Really Short History of Nearly Everything.
Hope you find what you're after!

Some great ideas, thank you!
Standard Saturday night viewing for us is David Attenborough :P
I"m in the midst of setting up DS with a profile on the laptop that will enable him to view approved YouTube clips. I am going to subscribe him to The Curiosity Show channel. It was my favourite show as a child and I think DS will love it.
I"ve read Bill Bryson's "Short History" book, it's fascinating!! Actually all of his books are interesting.
