Phonics PackAnother 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.
I liked the variety of activities offered
This is a superb pack bursting with information. Lots of high quality, very informative resources, which I am looking forward to using. The ebook offers an insight to every aspect of the Mayan way of life. Thank you!
Great resources that have saved me hours
Really fantastic, high quality resources which include ideas for lessons on every subject. Finally, I get my weekend back! Thank you!
Used this resource to go back in time to the construction of Hadrian's wall on a recent stay in Northumberland. This was a VERY useful resource (boy age 7) and I tailored the pages to the ones I knew we would get most out of, numerals and money, families and children, gods, events cards, activities etc. Many of the classroom banners, posters etc are not for us but nevertheless it still left a decent chunk to choose from. I am hoping to find some way of downloading some to ipad in an interactive form, possibly by using ipads notes which can handle pdf with the on screen writable feature.
Thanks for this amazing resource. We use it with young autistic adults.
This pack fits perfectly into what we need to cover in Maths,look forward to both the Australian and New Zealand edition of the pack...where do i go to look at the preview of the Australian pack?
The Time Pack
I have used the time pack very successfully with a variety of year groups. The posters, cards and information in the pack are all very easy to use as they are bright, easy to read, a quality learning tool. I printed off and laminated all the cards and posters.Once my unit was completed the laminated cards were left out in my maths area of the classroom for the children to use when they had a spare moment.They are fabulous and I wouldn't be without them.......I love all the hands on....children love being able to use and hold the cards,posters.....much better than sheets or online activities. Thank you Teaching Packs!
This pack has been absolutely fantastic. The students were all engaged and there were positive outcomes all around- I learnt as a teacher and the students have benefited greatly. Absolutely recommend.
The Money Pack
Hi Mark and Helen,
I have just finished downloading the Money Pack and can't wait to use it! As a supply teacher, I have recently been teaching money to KS1 children and was very aware of the gaps in an 'all round' understanding for them. Your pack is BRILLIANT; it fills in all those gaps, so essential for a solid understanding. Also .. your 'Money Movie' worksheets are going to be PERFECT for my Year 6 next week, after their Sats, to give them a creative change. Well done once again; BRILLIANT, thoughtful creativity in all teh resources that you provide!
This is a fantastic resource for helping children to understand the recent changes in UK currency. Really looking forward to using them. Thank you Teaching Packs!
Instruction Writing Pack
I used this pack with my current Year 3 class. After searching the internet for some clear and visual display resources I finally came across Teaching Packs. This pack had everything I needed, not only for a simple and clear display, but also well differentiated lesson resources. As a class we did a cold write of what to do when the fire alarm sounds. We then planted seeds and wrote a set of instructions using the resources from this pack. Finally the children had to follow the lizard card instructions independently and then improve them. An extremely valuable resource that saved me so much preparation time, that I was able to concentrate on helping the children really grasp the features and concepts of instructional writing. Thank you Teaching Packs team. GREAT job!
I am so happy to have found and joined Teaching Packs.
The Human body pack was the first pack i have used. i can not wait to use more. Simple and easy to follow. Thank you!
An excellent resource. The pupils in my class thoroughly enjoyed using the worksheets and asked for more.
Amazing warm-up activities!!
Since signing up to Teaching Packs this has been my go-to pack for daily warm-up ideas. Not only do they stimulate the children´s minds but they also get them socialising and interacting with each other and myself, the teacher. It´s also been great to use these ideas to break up the lesson as well as lesson openers. I have found that getting the students to write or discuss something completely off topic can get them re-focused and ready to continue with the syllabus. It´s a great follow-on from the first pack and full of amazing ideas which have really helped me to reduce my lesson planning time. I´d be lost without this pack so thank you for creating it! 🙂
Space - School and Scouts!
I have used this both at school and at scouts! Very useful resources!
A very useful pack for display purposes, for the planning of explanation ideas and a useful list of features necessary for an explanation text. The colorful and engaging nature of these resources makes them attractive to my children.
A range of examples of good explanations for a WAGOLL wall would have made it better, with the features already highlighted or emphasized. Otherwise a very good pack.
The Pirates Pack
I love this site. It's fabulous!! I used the Pirates pack so much, everything I needed was there and the children have produced some incredible writing using all the different information supplied on it. Thanks.
The Human Body
Was looking at the Digestive System as part of a Science/SPHE lesson - found that Teaching Packs Human Body a fantastic supplementary resource to extend children's learning not only on the Digestive System but also on the Human Body. Children completed small group projects on the Body using this resource. They loved the images and found the information included easy to understand. A very worthy 5 stars.
Year 6 had a great bit of fun making their 'dragons'. A welcome break from the pressure of SATs and a great lead into analysing instructions and writing our own.
The Romans Pack
Our class of children aged between 7 -11 were working with this resource for the whole term. The children are from all over the world, and English is often their third language,and having their own personal book to work from made life so much easier for everyone. Living in Tenerife, being able to print our own very informative booklets is so much cheaper than providing text books that cost so much to ship here. Differentiation was very straightforward because of the range of material included in the pack. We could have used the pack to include children from other classes in the school as the material was adaptable and beautifully drawn and presented. The booklets will make up packs for a future lesson in 2 or 3 years time when we revisit the topic.
The topic was used to develop skills across the curriculum - map work for geography; maths - using Roman numerals; a whole range of English skills including how to use a glossary and contents page for information gathering; and the soldier section for persuasive writing to make wanted posters. The quiz at the end was used to assess the knowledge that the children had acquired throughout the term.
Area and Perimeter pack
Absolutely love all of your packs, but especially the booklets that accompany the maths packs. They are clear and concise and contain all of the information you need in a progressive manner. The display posters are clear and eye catching. Wouldn't be without my teaching packs. Thank you.
A useful and time saving site!
I used the Victorians pack this term. The illustrations are eye-catching and the information is child friendly. The book-style guide, in particular, was really useful in encouraging my Year 3 class to develop their skills in retrieving information from a non-fiction text. I look forward to using the Vikings pack next term!
I can't remember how I stumbled across your website, but I found it in my first month as an NQT. In a single entry school, with no planning in place, and four children of my own at home I was finding things tough! I have now used many of your packs - Area and perimeter, Fractions, Time, Instructional texts and the Egyptians - and have recommended you to my Year 5 and 6 colleagues who are studying the Victorians. They, like me, have been delighted with the quality of your resources, the lovely photographs and story starters, and clear explanations. I now always go to your site first in the hope that you will have a pack waiting for me for my next topic! (Volcanoes and Tudors next!!). I am recommending you to all my fellow ex-students and the lecturers at St Mary's University, and would like to thank you very much for your fantastic products.
Excellent informative resource
The Human Body pack is absolutely brilliant. The images are well made, good quality and so easy to use. My children particularly enjoyed matching the names, descriptions and body parts on the posters. I love the fact that the resources are easy to differentiate for different abilities. The booklet is also amazing and packs such a lot of information into it. Thank you so much for this amazing resource. You've succeeded again in making a resource that can be used again and again.
