Teacher’s Pet is Officially in Partnership with ESPO
It’s been difficult for us to keep this one a secret because we have been so excited about it, but this week we announced that Teacher’s Pet is officially in partnership with ESPO. It’s been a long journey for us, but once the opportunity came around to have the chance to work with ESPO, we knew that it was the right decision for us to take, and we couldn’t be more excited about what lies ahead.
Our partnership with ESPO allows us to continue to grow our awesome team, take on new, bigger and better projects and create even more resources, apps, games and content for our amazing community of educators!
One of the best things about our new partnership is that our wonderful Ultimate School membership will now be available exclusively through ESPO and are now able to offer this at a price that offers fantastic value for money! Our Whole School Ultimate Membership now starts from just £315 (incl VAT). With our Ultimate School membership, you can get access to ALL of our amazing downloadable classroom content such as:

Plus all of our resources, ebooks, apps, games, animation, activities, display resources and SO much more!
All of us at Teacher’s Pet are incredibly excited for what’s to come, and we cannot wait to see what the future has in store for us as we work closely with ESPO over the coming weeks, months and indeed years! The future is bright for Teacher’s Pet, but this next chapter of our journey has only just begun.

Primary News Today is back!
That’s right, Primary News Today is back with a brand new issue!
This week’s issue of PNT (Paws, nose and tails!) is dedicated to all the incredible doggos out there that are making a difference in their community.
We’ve got a collection of inspiring stories that will be sure to melt your heart (it will definitely be one of your favourite issues!) + lots of pet-themed resources to extend your teaching.
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
It’s just over a month now till The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on 2nd June, and it’s going to be a cause for celebration as The Queen celebrates 70 fantastic years as the head of state of the UK and 15 Commonwealth realms, in addition to being the head of the Commonwealth itself. To help celebrate this momentous occasion as the longest-reigning female monarch in history, the team have been hard at work making some wonderful resources for you to use in your classroom, that serve as both fun activities and brilliant learning opportunities.
We have PowerPoint Presentations, wonderful Poster Packs, Timeline Events and much more, as well as Key Stage 1 resources being added to the site soon. Come and check them out and be a part of the celebrations!
Marvellous Macbeth Resources
“Double, double toil and trouble. Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.” We predict these shiny new Macbeth and Shakespeare resources will be most useful in your year 5 and year 6 classrooms. We’ve got information PowerPoints, comprehensions, character mapping and much more! Come and check them out today!
The story of Tutankhamun is an incredibly fascinating story. Tutankhamun, commonly referred to as King Tut, was the Pharoah of Egypt from 1332 to 1323 BC. The British archaeologist Howard Carter, had discovered the sarcophagus of King Tut in a tomb within The Valley of Kings.
In a drive to increase the amount of history content posted on the site, we decided to create resources for Howard Carter and his discovery of Tutankhamun. Our team have worked incredibly hard on these resources, making sure the resources were created with accurate information before being published on the site.
We have a fantastic information door poster on the Sarcophagus of Tutankhamun, other fantastic display resources, information maps, diary entry activities and so much more! You definitely need to check them out!
Over the coming months, we will be further increasing the amount of history content available to download from the site. Like our other history content, you can guarantee that it will be fun, informative, accurate and creative, and will bring your classroom to life!
What would you like to see on the site? Got a historical topic or event of importance that you think deserves some love and the TPet touch with resources? If your suggestion is KS1 or KS2, we’d love to hear from you. You never know, we might end up taking your suggestion forward!
The Three Billy Goats Gruff
The forever brilliant fairytale of The Three Billy Goats Gruff is universally loved, and we love it so much that we’ve made some amazing classroom resources for it as part of our Traditional Tales series. The resources are wonderfully designed with gorgeous visuals that children will love. We have storytelling book pages, display cutouts, sequencing cards, sorting activities and much more, so come check them out!
