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!
Here are the latest reviews that have been posted by our wonderful members:
I am totally amazed how much this pack has helped me to teach my four children about the human body, which to be fair, can be a difficult task, but this pack with all its colourful diagrams and understandable task, matched with what we already had researched, made for a perfect few weeks of study. This is indeed an excellent resource, one of which I would seriously recommend - very clear descriptions with detailed diagrams and the follow-up quizzes are just what any educator needs for their teaching. As home-schoolers we have loved using Teaching Packs and will continue to do so...I will be sad when the day arrives when we do not need to use this library of resources. Thanks you so much/Diolch yn fawr 🙂
Not one of the more popular topics, I would have thought, but very interesting to see. Mark and Helen make a fine job out of it, with a most interesting guide and lots of very interesting connections - Saxon history, science recording, vocabulary games, and a comprehension.
I have just started using this excellent resource to kick start my literacy block.
We orally read as a class. Discuss. Pick out words for vocab work. Use it for grammar to pick out nouns, verbs etc. Use it for tense. How can we change the tense of this piece of writing? We use it to practise our cursive writing by copying as much of it as we can it 10 minutes. Next we use the comprehension activities and I sometimes even add a few of my own. Complete at least one of the activities. Early finishers can try more. The list goes on. It has taken us on many a YouTube/google journey to answer questions that may arise.
Many of my students consider it the best part of the day, so thanks for your fantastic effort. It is the resource that I now use the most.
I was also happy to see a couple of Australian events mentioned too. Have you considered doing an Australian version?
As a rather unsporty person myself, I'm very grateful to have this so I can talk to my class about football. Lovely video, great resources. Very useful!
Hi guys, love the resource. Please add a guide as to how to use it. Also why are there such limited resources on Phase 4?
Thanks for your review Stacey. Phase 4 is generally focussed on consolidation of skills learned during Phase 3. There are no new graphemes learned in this phase, which is why there are fewer resources. However, this is definitely something that we can improve in a future update.
This is really nice. Summer is a lovely topic to talk to the children about, and the resources here are top quality. While this is a topic that might be expected to be reserved for younger children - and it's true that the maths and handwriting resources show this is an Early Years pack in many ways - there are also some complex colouring pages, the n-v-adj-adv word banks and the comprehension, which show it to be useful for older students too. And of course the really beautiful images, video and displays make this pack suitable for any age.
Thank you so much for the fantastic and exciting resources that you are providing us. My students and I are really enjoying these resources.
Quick question. With your handwriting and phonics letters sounds., Do you do New South Wales foundation fonts? Australia. Much appreciated
Thanks for your great review, Olle! We don't have resources with New South Wales foundation fonts at the moment, unfortunately.
The pictures are engaging but I would like some directions on how to use the materials. I opened every file and could not find them. Maybe this information is something everyone should know but not me:(
