Jokes for Kids

We all need a laugh. Big, Small, Old, Young? Here is our selection of curated jokes we have found from across the internet that are appropriate for primary school age kids (and their parents and teachers!).

They are in text format, with simple Bold formatting on the punchline, so if you want to copy and paste any of them into your communications home to pupils, it should play nicely with most email and school communication apps.

Enjoy. 🙂
