Looking forward to using these resources as a relief teacher this week (the "When do we use?" and the robot activity). Love your work!

I love the creativity supporting the information helping students understand the concepts. The pack has lovely posters used as reference for students while working on skills. The variety of the resources are great. Thank you.

Super Helpful

It is difficult to teach area and perimeter to third graders who might not be fluent in multiplication yet. This pack was helpful with the way these concepts were explained with useful pictures to explain and show what was going on.

Great resource for ALN

Yet again another amazing resource pack! Suited my class off autistic learners who are ks3 but working at ks2 level.

Very versatile pack

This pack was really helpful during both lockdowns and teaching in the classroom. It is varied enough that the learning and activities can be adapted for students of various levels. It both supported those who needed support and provided challenges for those who were ready.

I have been using this pack since 2017. The students love this pack. When I prepare the English classes I usually work with my friend Teacher Theresa who gives Art and Geometry classes. The pack helps children a lot, because sometimes they have difficulty in visualize and when they see the examples and the design of the activities, it is much easier.
I usually work with fourth and fifth degrees.

While some good resources no details of age group or stages and the search tool does not help either for this or any other products.

Thanks for your review 'L'. We try to include a range of resources in each pack so that there is something for a wide range of age groups and ability levels. You can then choose the resources that are most appropriate for your children. We can certainly think of ways of highlighting age levels more clearly within the packs though.

Great for Sped Courses

I used this pack last year with my class of mostly inter-related students. It was fabulous for the visual learners and for having options to meet various need levels within the class. I was so glad to find teaching packs as a resource since my other resources are at the high school level and not useful for students with special needs. Thank you so much for your work to make math educational and fun at the same time!

area and perimeter aln/sen learners

I have used this pack for 2 years now and the pupils love the fact that I can enlarge the sheets and they can put all the information and answers on each shape.
All the resources are easy to use, the designs are perfectly pitched at the learners' ability with plenty of space to add other information and the teaching methods.
Fantastic resources.
