E-learning materials developed so far are a useful addition to the learning process. Their function is to assist in explaining the real world around us. Among other goals, this means the explanation of experiments and preparation to conduct them. Nearly two years have passed since we prepared e-learning materials for 3rd grade of primary school. In the frame of our national project we have prepared the e-learning materials which cover the basics of physics for primary school pupils. Children are encouraged to study the materials and conduct their own experiments. Teachers who have used our materials are giving us very encouraging responses and would like to use other learning materials prepared in this way. It is very important for the development of natural science competences of children to choose the right approach to teaching the physics. In the right combination of experimental work and using E-learning materials is the key to successful parallel development of both competences. Teachers and their students used the materials frequently during the whole period. We found that the use of social and natural science topics is not evenly distributed. The tests are much less used than learning materials. Structured topics are more frequently used than monolith ones. Teachers have given us satisfactory responses using the materials but not as complete lectures. Our e-learning materials are used mostly for natural science topics. The implication is that students gain natural science and digital competences which are favourable for their age.
