Amazing resource! The children found the Space Book really useful for researching the planets and the writing prompts inspired some great writing. Thank you!
Great resource for our Space topic. My daughter (Home Educated) loves it and we all really enjoy this resource. Thank you.
My daughter is home educated, she’s Autistic and ADHD so has had some challenges in learning, however this pack has been brilliant to advance her interests in space. Brilliant resources and very useful.
Currently using this pack with my class and the children are really engaged and enjoying the topic. There a lots of interesting and useful facts which were easy to find and use. The worksheets are great, as they are well produced and are fun activities. I would highly recommend using this pack.
What a fantastic package. My daughter (home educated) wanted to find out more about space and this pack gave a brilliant starting point. We found the pictures of each planet a real talking point, comparing each planet and it’s differences. Thank you so much we love this website!
Although I work with two secondary age pupils, they both struggle with different aspects of literacy and numeracy. It is so important that we can provide as many learning opportunities as we can to cover the 'same' thing. Over-learning is a dreadful word but for young people with specific learning difficulties it is a necessity. However, it doesn't have to be boring. Packs, like this one, offer a number of learning opportunities presented in different formats so that pupils can 'transfer' their skills - and if you can transfer skills to different contexts / situations then learning has taken place! The fact that they are colourful, attractive, well illustrated and not too much text on a page fulfils so many requirements for quality first teaching, especially children with SEND. Keep up the good work! However, are there any plans to design packs to tackle more aspects of the curriculum for older children?
Thanks for your wonderful comments Joy! We would love to cover more of the curriculum for older children in the future, but there are still areas of the primary curriculum that we want to create resources for first.
As a home educator we usually work on a topic for three to four weeks using the topic across all our lessons presently we are starting week five and my son is still engaged with his lessons and we have at least two weeks work ahead. As always the pack is set up to encourage children. I have found many useful resources on this site and I would recommend both this pack and the site in general. This resource in particular has given us many interesting facts to start our discussions with and it can be used by anyone across a variety of different subjects. Superb resource as always.
Am currently using this resource with My P6 class. Great ideas and lots to prompt discussions. Will use again and again.
I have used this resource both in school and in Summer Scheme. It gave a lot of interesting facts which were easy to find and use. The worksheets are varied and well produced.
All round a great pack and I would highly recommend it.
We used these resources to set up our own “Space station” with rotational activities that inspired the kids no end. I love the colourful, modern images used in the display posters.
