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!

Another amazing creation from all of you at 'Teaching Packs! Lots of well thought out resources. I think the video is a perfect length and a great balance of written information and visuals - very inspiring for children of all ages & will certainly grab their attention. An excellent addition to this pack especially with the comprehension!
What a terrific Pack! For anyone celebrating or teaching Thnaksgiving at school, this is just what we need. The Guide, as usual, is thoroughly informative. There are some lovely arts and crafts activities, including the Turkey Split Pin Puppet; the game is well-made and fun; and I am especially impressed with the video - it's really well made, and has a lovely comprehension to go with it.
I teach high school English and am the mother of a nine-year-old girl. Today my daughter has had Fractions for homework. In my teaching world, fractions are the domain of a group of teachers who speak a language I do not understand. However, with the Fractions pack, I have had a refresher for myself and helped my daughter gain a better understanding of her work. All too well do I remember struggling through fractions when I was at school - I wish I had had this kind of resource at my disposal at that time!
I genuinely enjoyed today's work with my daughter and smiled inwardly as I remembered that day in Saudi Arabia when I first clicked on the link that brought me to the Teaching Packs site.
I can only be grateful to you, Mark and Helen, for the superb resources you produce. As a mother I thank you, and as a teacher I thank you.
What an awesome addition to my whanau room. We operate a calming chair throughout a 4 room collaborative team. It is becoming more and more useful especially for after break times and we had just discussed putting out some questions for the students to think about. You have just saved me a massive amount of time, thank you.
This would be a lovely addition to a classroom or school corridor. It's great to get kids thinking about these things. I particularly like having the black-and-white colouring versions so the children can make their own if they wish.
I really like the way you're going - taking ideas from other packs (in this case, the Growth Mindset Pack) and developing them so they can make full-blown displays. This one looks great, just what the children need. And plenty of teachers too!
As usual, this one exceeds my expectations. Not only is there everything that any teacher doing playscripts with their class could want, there is so much more! As usual, the image selection, THE GUIDE and the practice worksheets are all present, and such high quality! The sample scripts are broad and diverse, the page borders and bunting are a delightful bonus, and it also has exciting material about performing your plays and the history of great playwrights.
The next time I teach playscripts in English - or am involved in any kind of dramatic work, or have the children write a script for any other topic - I shall have this to use. Wonderful!
Love it! Love it so much. I’m a home educator and I love Teaching Packs a lot. Lots of resources and plenty of fun ones too. Would recommend to you all.
