Member Feedback and Reviews
I use the Teaching Packs resources all the time and have told many teaching friends about the site and the great resources. The knowledge organisers are really useful and I use them as reference guides for the children throughout the topic. I have been teaching for 18 years in the primary sector and I look for good quality, engaging resources that are useful for the children and aid their learning journey – this is what you get from Teaching Packs every time. I have been a member since the first few packs were created!
I find the teaching packs very bright and attractive to use with children in my class. They are very informative and give good visuals to help children understand why things happen or why we use certain strategies.
As a home educator of three (and ex-primary school teacher) the teaching packs are extremely useful. I can use them for a topic across the ages, and my children find them bright and colourful. They enjoy the layout of the worksheets and the games that are included. This is my third year of subscribing and it won’t be my last.
As a home tutor I find the teaching packs invaluable as I can select what I need for each individual student. The packs are superbly produced with fantastic content and brilliant illustrations.
These are brilliant packs that work really well in my special needs classroom! The information is always presented in clear sections with illustrations to support all level of readers. A subscription which should be in every trainee and NQT’s ’virtual bag for teaching’.
My work takes me across the South East of England and I work with individual students, groups and teachers, SLT and teachers in training. Every day is very different and I need resources that I can quickly adapt to suit the purpose (this can sometimes be less than 10 minutes). Your resources allow me to engage students with minimal planning and I have seen the instant impact on learning. The design, breadth and professional look of your resources are exceptional.
So thank you for another year of wonderful resources and for getting back to me, taking suggestions and asking us all what we’d like next!
I tutor Maths and English both at my centre and online. I highly recommend Teaching Packs and have been a big fan since I started my business in 2016. These packs are so useful for teaching and reinforcing concepts. I particularly love the ‘Fractions’, ‘Telling The Time’ and ‘Angles’ packs. The presentations and guides are brilliant for using with my online students. I use the PDF sheets both online and at my centre, so kids all over the world are benefitting from these wonderful resources!
We Home Educate and we really love the Teaching Packs resources! The topics always cover a variety of subjects, which is great because that’s how we prefer to learn. It always makes teaching easier when you can print all of the worksheets and information in one pack, rather than having to search for different worksheets and putting them together yourself. The packs are always bright and colourful and easy to read, which makes them appealing to the children. I am looking forward to using the Knowledge organisers, as they look like a great!

I've just downloaded this so haven't used it yet but it looks very promising. It would have been even better however, if there were some reading comprehension texts added as this would be a great, engaging way to hook reluctant readers.
A very nice pack indeed! I remember teaching the Toys topic to Year 1 some years ago. If I had had this Pack, it would have been a great advantage. Children will really love the big, bright, high-quality images; the video is very well made, with interesting questions; and there are lots of very good activities suitable for children from Early Years to lower Key Stage 2. A great set of resources for a fun topic!
This resource is so good. The pictures are different from other phonic 'words' charts/cards. My SEND group are able to engage in the class with such stimulating pictures. I really wish that I'd found your site earlier.
Fabulous resource. My students engaged fully and prefer comprehensions presented this way. Concentration and vocabulary improved and I could freeze the videos and discuss each question and how to structure their thoughts. Great for visual learners.
Thank you. You have once again produced a wonderful resource which saves time and my students love.
This looks very good indeed! A relevant, fascinating, useful display. The cartoons and banner and pictures and speech bubbles make a great display, the "Make your own profiles" pages are just what we need. And the collection of scientists themselves - really good! For my own class, this is just what we need, as we have a unit that focuses on female scientists, who are very well represented here. It also touches on other famous scientists and science features we focus on. Terrific!
Hi, thanks again for a wonderful resource. I was wondering if it would be possible to add a text file with each document showing the complete text from each video. I have some pupils who struggle with spellings and it would help them answer the comprehension questions independently if they had a sheet with the text to support them.
Keep up the great work. I love your teaching packs.
Thanks for your wonderful review, Mairéad. This is definitely something that we can add in the future.
This is amazing and much welcomed as I am going to use it for Scouts.
We have been meeting on Zoom for 12 months and it is getting hard to keep Interest. Tomorrow night we are talking about our District Virtual camp at weekend to celebrate St George's day.
Video is fab and think Scouts will enjoy having fun with anagrams.
Wow! Now, with the addition of the Saint George Pack, Teaching Packs has all four patron saints. That's a really great thing for British teachers, including ones like me who teach abroad.
Saint George is not one of the most celebrated saints, but this Pack really makes him relevant. It ties together lots of interesting and useful topics - Roman history, myths and legends, geography, culture - and does it with a load of delightful and interesting activities. The video is really well made, the board game and story are fun for younger children, and the Guide is well-made for older students. There are also comprehension, story-writing and word puzzle activities for literacy, and finger puppets for younger learners who want to act out the story. A really strong addition to TP!
