What do teachers say about the resources?

Frequently asked questions

Yes, of course! Maybe you have the time and enjoy creating things, but it has to be said that being a young learner teacher can involve a HUGE amount of extra work making materials. Give yourself a break!

All my materials have been tried and tested in the classroom. As well as having almost 20 years of teaching experience, I am also a qualified trainer for the Trinity TYLEC (Teaching Young Learners Extension Certificate), so you can rely on the quality.

Yes! They work great for mixed aged groups and different abilities because they come with different templates AND different suggestions with how to use the resource. No time wasted on adapting different worksheets!

This resource includes plenty of activity suggestions for during and after the craft. It’s definitely not a done in 5 minutes activity (unless you want it to be!)

It works great as the main part of a lesson but I’d recommend adding in the Over in the Meadow song or story and a game or two. You can find what you need on the Over in the Meadow Story Resource page.

You can certainly find some free worksheets out there, I can guarantee your young learners will be much more excited to create this. Engaged and motivated children make for a happy lesson (and teacher!)
