Great resource

I am so happy that I bought a membership to this website! It has saved me hours and hours of finding materials. This pack has been very helpful for my Grade 2 students. I found that the material was suitable for my students and allowed me to challenge them a little more too.

Useful display

I displayed the relevant pages on my working wall for the children to read while they were lining up. Children seemed to enjoy the different characters and looking at the pictures.

brilliant resource!

Amazing pack - it really inspired my son to learn more about 3d shapes and now he can spot and name many of them in everyday settings. Every download we have used has been a roaring success, such a great website. Thanks guys, keep up the good work 🙂

Very useful resource

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.

Fantastic and so refreshing!

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!

Motivating for the class!

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!!!

Wonderful resource

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.
