Fantastic resource

This resource really is a huge help. I moved to early years from the senior end of our school and this pack really helped me get started. Great, comprehensive materials to help get you set up!

Really comprehensive

This has got a great variety of early years activities. It saved me so much time as they were all in one pack and my son loves the activities.

This pack is so useful, especially now there is a choice of alternative font (correct numbers font for my school). It covers all the basics and has activities which, though Early Years intended, are proving very useful for small step, repetitive work/games or practice for my lower KS2 group, who are still trying to get a solid grasp on early number concepts.

Very Useful

This has been such a useful resource and saved me a lot of time too! I especially loved the stories which has been shared with my class many times both for shared and personal reading time, thank you 🙂
