Currently using this pack with my 11 and 8 year old boys (we are home educating), who are very much enjoying the activities included. Some of them are rather reminiscent of Minecraft I believe! It also ties in well with the area and perimeter & angles packs, which we are planning on using after this. Thank you for the effort put into making it all so engaging and interesting.
This pack like many others contains such a variety of activities that there is something for everyone, especially at KS2 level. The resources are bright and colourful which makes a subject such as maths really engaging and fun! The possibility to print many of the resources is a great bonus and fantastic time saver for busy teachers! Thank you for your hard work and creativity in consistently producing quality resources!
I have used resources from this pack for the past few years and it's fantastic. The resources suit a variety of ages and abilities so it's very easy to differentiate when needed. The children are so motivated by the hands-on practical templates. Another super SUPER RESOURCE! THANK YOU!!!
I absolutely love this website and all the resources it provides! It saves me time and effort knowing I can come to this page for useful resources - instead of sifting through junk on the internet! Most importantly, the kids love the resources and it is helpful to their learning!
My boys in 3rd class loved this last year. A variety of resources to help teach the topic well. I have the same class grouping this year and look forward to using this resource again.
I love this pack! It has something for all levels. The follow me cards are especially brilliant as I have been trying to make these for ages now having used something similar years ago. However time short and brain addled, it was taking me forever so these were a lifesaver! I would have liked some more challenging nets but otherwise can't fault anything.
Just had a recap on Shapes both 2D and 3D and the powerpoint in this pack was fabulous...just what I needed!
