great resource

Great resources for my SEN group working on functional maths. They liked the timetable activities. Good display options too.

 by Christine

This pack has it all. I can't tell you how many classes I have used this with, from primary 4 to now secondary ASN. Learning made fun. What everyone needs. Thank you!

Fantastic resources

This pack has been so useful for my year 3 class. Looking at an analogue clock, which they don't see enough. The digital clock resources were great too but it's excellent for the basics for display/working walls too.

Great Resources

Hi, Again another really useful pack that I have used so much out of for my children but I notice in the vocabulary list it is missing 'month'.
Thank you for all your creativity and useful resources.

Hi Viv! Thanks for taking the time to write a lovely review. We have just added 'Month' to the vocabulary labels.

Great resources!

This has a great range of resources for time but I really like the timetable tasks and the what time will it be? These are straightforward and are a great starting place for these subjects - thank you!

 by Laura

A brilliant set of resources to complement my teaching of time and the calendar to my Entry Level KS4 students!
Only thing I would add would be some work on roman numerals also, so we can stretch and challenge the higher ability kids.
Great resource - thank you!

One of my favourites!

I love this resource - it covers everything in such a colourful, interesting way. It's cool for all ages. Easy to use time and time again. (Did you see what I did there?!)

Thank you for the huge range of resources provided in this pack to teach children the tricky area of telling the time. Pretty much everything you could want is included, which saves an enormous amount of teacher time searching elsewhere and all are presented in a clear, colourful and attractive way. The range of worksheets covers so many learning objectives as well and the supporting resources such as guide sheets and template sheets blank clock faces have all been really useful, and can be used with children of all ages as well.

To improve further, could perhaps do with some resources using Roman Numerals on clock faces, and maybe some that involve converting between the different units of time, but otherwise an incredibly helpful teaching pack.

I love this teaching pack. Bright and clear visuals with an abundance of activities that each resource can be used for. I use the pack with ASD pupils and although the level of some of the tasks in the pack are a little too complex for my pupils, they are easy to adapt and/or be broken down into smaller, more manageable tasks. So glad I subscribed. Value for money and quality resources. Keep up the good work please.

Time for time!

A great resource that I use on a daily basis. The analogue and digital time poster is always on display next to the physical clocks to allow the children independence in learning to read the time.
