We’ve recently added a K-W-L chart on LearningGrids. These are a great way to engage pupils in a new topic – helping them to recall knowledge, develop a purpose for learning, and track their progress.
As schools close for the summer break, there is an air of anticipation of how we can all use this time not just to reflect and refresh, but to keep developing minds working and growing. Let’s help children to feel calm and settled, and most importantly inspired and ready to face all the challenges of the new academic year.

On April 25th, 2021, we took part in the Filling in the Blanks’ Virtual 5K event. This was the first fundraising event for this year’s charity.
We have recently published some differentiated Florence Nightingale sets that are a fantastic resource for supporting students to read, write, and talk about this famous nurse and how she improved hospital conditions.
Using traditional tales as a starting point for learning is a fantastic way to engage children of all ages. I have highlighted a few of our recently published sets based on the Norwegian folktale the Billy Goats Gruff.
