A bit tangental, but the digimap for schools service 
www.digimapforschools.ac.uk is a great resource for schools.  The 
service provides a wms of OS data and some basic annotation tools that 
allow pupils to create their own maps.  The service is not free, there 
is a small charge that covers the running costs.  The service is build 
on Open Source software.
