Growth Mindset Rules
This pack is amazing and stimulated me writing a program using these resources and has led to further research.
Great resources for showing children. Helps with knowledge and saves researching certain areas.
More writing frames and differentiated / EAL would improve this already great pack.
Just what we needed!
I use a lot of the Teaching Packs and I find with most that I use parts of them and find other parts irrelevant. I found with this pack though that every page was relevant and it gave a great overview of all aspects of The Olympics. Well done!
Another great resource
I love this pack - great example reports on a range of subjects to appeal to a wide variety of children. I also really like the guide that comes with the pack - I laminate it and make it into a book and leave it in the resource are for children to go back to at their leisure.
We have trainee teachers in at the moment and they finish 4 weeks before the end of term, we were thinking of a short project to take us through those final weeks and into my lap drops the answer to all my prayers! The Olympics Pack! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This is a really helpful resource with lots of facts and information in clear to understand language. I love the fact that can get the information on smaller cards and not just on A4 sheets as I don't have a lot of wall space in my classroom. As a junior school teacher I would have loved to have the fraction cards set out so I could just print 1 or 2 pages and have had a whole, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/7, 1/8, 1/9th and 1/10th. Instead to get the card with each of those fractions on I had to print almost every page. A small grumble, and I'm sure they'll come in useful later anyway!
I am very proud of all of you. I love these packs. They are helping me a lot. I do not know which one is better. Congrats
Olympics Pack - Awesome!
I've been waiting for this one for ages! It just gets better and better. Everything I needed for the Olympics Unit next term!
Thanks so much :)
Another GOLD winner
This will be extremely useful when covering the topic of the Olympics and helping children to learn the history of the Ancient Olympics.
Wow... Absolutely fabulous. Well done Mark and Helen!
My year 4 class loved this resource as it enabled them to work independently when annotating different persuasive texts. They found the resources easy to access and enabled them to produce very persuasive speeches for their court case where they battled to put Boggis, Bunce and Bean behind bars. Definitely recommended!
Huge colourful phonics pack
Another great pack. A huge amount of material which is also very colourful for younger children. Will keep us busy for ages!
Thank you for another great pack.
Yet another winner!
Thank you again! Another winning pack just perfect for making it easier to differentiate coordinate lessons!
Brilliant for your poetry unit
Downloaded this pack recently, it has been perfect for our poetry unit. The adjectives and similes resources have been great for support for students when they are not working with me directly. They synonyms word banks are great to stretch and grow students' vocabulary.
This is an amazing pack. The contents are comprehensive and precise in easily understandable terms for several grades. Yet another pack I found invaluable to my teaching resources. You have outdone yourselves once again! Thank you!
A useful pack to help teach students the structure of a report. Good templates provided. These are customisable if you wish. Posters are useful for independent student reference after teaching.
Kindergarten Animal Report
I used the Koala Animal Report for my Kindergarten Class. I also used the graphic organizer available. My students loved it! We popcorn read the report. They love the real photo of a Koala. This is how you do it! This Animal Report is one of our benchmark assessment and is graded. I couldn't be happier that I found one for my class to do. Thank you so muchl
I love the addition of the ebook. This is a new topic for me and it has been great to be able to access all these great resources and display items. I have used several of the teaching packs before and find all the items within them to be off good quality.
We have been following Tim Peake closely on twitter and are joining in with Rocket science experiment so this was very timely. I liked it was very current as most books are naturally less so. I liked the time line which gave the children a sense of timescale. Each planet etc information pitched right with not too difficult vocabulary with a glossary attached- great.
Could I suggest for a new pack The Sea , or under the sea or the seaside for a summer term.Looking forward to comprehension one. Hope it includes inferential questions using simple sentences .Thanks again.You are a boon to busy teachers...
I used these as part of my morning literacy rotations. I found my guys were keen to think outside the box. These were also great writing stimulations for my infant class last year. Now using it for my new role as learning support for year 5 students who dislike learning, who want to be spoon fed, and won't take risks. They are enjoying them and we (class teacher and I) are seeing an attitude change. Thank you
In my new role as learning support teacher I'm helping students become more independent learners. I started using the grammar pack because it was simple easy bright and colourful. These year 5 kids enjoyed the activities that are designed in the pack. It has now become part of our literacy rotations in the morning. Now that these guys are independent. Looking at introducing the narrative pack this term.
I loved this pack for as a teaching resource in multiple curricular areas. I used the display resources in my classroom and they were noticed and praised during our recent Ofsted inspection.
I was totally blown away by the quality of the content and the graphics in this pack. As a casual relief teacher, being called on to teach anything from Kinder-Year10, I can see this resource as being a wonderful tool for lesson starters, early finishing or if I need to fill in a short amount of time (as happens when we are a relief teacher) Mark and Helen, I am so glad that I have found my way to your brilliant teaching Packs. I will be letting others know about them. Your work is going to save me hours of preparation time
A wonderful resource
I am teaching grade 5 this year and this pack is going to be part of my teachers toolkit. My class this year completed a growth mindset survey and only 9 percent have a growth mindset. With mental health issues with a large number of my students these resources in conjunction with other resources- class dojo has some great animations to beautifully marry into this pack. I will be laminating and photocopying and creating growth mindset folders for my class to see their journey through the ups of downs of grade five. A big big big thank you Mark for this and I hope you can build on this. Your posters are well presented and concepts in simplified language to cater for the diverse needs of my classroom.
I have just been put onto this site and have spent my day printing and laminating I am so excited to start next ter with all of these awesome resources!
