Length Pack

I have just finished using this with my home Ed daughter. This pack is fantastic. Maths is a real struggle due to lots of anxiety but this pack was excellent. Perfect amount of information and beautifully illustrated which is a big win here. Another fantastic resource.

Thank you.

I have found the Length Pack very useful for my class of 8 and 9 year olds. They particularly enjoyed the identity parades activities.

Excellent Resource

This was the first teaching pack we chose. My home educated children have really enjoyed completing it. The information pack has been laminated and used as reference many times since it was printed off. Their favourite activity was the 'Identity Parade', which is a brilliant and engaging way of making the children use their brains. We are about to finish the magnets mini pack and move onto the light mini pack. Looking forward to seeing what it contains.

A wonderful introduction to length through the presentation and then a range of activities and display materials. The children enjoy the graphics. Such a reliable resource that saves so much time. Thanks.

Length Pack

I have just downloaded the length pack and once again am thrilled with the range of resources within the pack. The ppt is excellent and will make a wonderful handbook for the older children in our small school to follow, and to annotate for themselves. This is important as we have so many children from all around the world who need to translate information into their own language to help them assimilate it. Thank you once again.
