The team have been having a lot of fun this week as they prepared for National Squirrel Appreciation Day with some fantastic resources for you to use in your classroom.

Waves of Wellbeing – Episode 3

It feels like we’re coasting through Waves of Wellbeing as we now reach Episode 3 of the series. This week, we focus on sociable sea otters and think about what we can do to help combat loneliness. Just like every week, Episode 3 brings:

  • A wonderful Bookimation and Animated Story + PowerPoint
  • Colouring Tile
  • Journal
  • Minibook
  • Teacher Pack
  • Weekly Display Focus

You will require an ULTIMATE membership to be able to access the bookimations and the downloadable resources. But at only £34.95 for an entire year, not only will you have access to the entire Waves of Wellbeing scheme, but you will also get access to other Wellbeing schemes from before and upcoming, fantastic collaborations, exciting topic packs and so much more! And with over 5000 resources available to choose from, you’re certainly not short of choice!

Get Ready for Chinese New Year!

February 1st marks Chinese New Year for 2022! 2022 marks the year of the tiger, symbolising Strength, Power and Prosperity in the Chinese Zodiac. We have a whole host of resources available for Chinese New Year, but we’ve picked out some of our favourites this year, including two new resources that we absolutely love!

Beijing Winter Olympics

This year the Winter Olympics head to Beijing, China! 2018’s Winter Olympics were held in Seoul, South Korea. We have a host of resources available to download, with more resources to follow in the coming weeks as we build-up to the event itself, so make sure you keep an eye on the site!

Squirrel Season is here!

We’ve uploaded some brilliant new resources all themed around… Squirrels! We’ve got all sorts of different activities available to choose from, including reading comprehensions, amazing fact file posters, a wonderful build a squirrel feeder craft and so much more! As the weather begins to get warmer as we edge ever closer to Spring, it’s the perfect time to grab your resources and get joining in the appreciation of these wonderful animals!

Get Ready for Burns Night

It won’t be long now until Burns Night! We’ve got some brilliant activities to use in the classroom, such as designing a Tartan, Wordsearch, Poems, Reading Quizzes and much more! Check out the topic tag to take a look at all the resources on the site!

Check out these fantastic Author Profiles

We’ve made some brilliant new author profile sheets for you to download and display in your classroom or school reading areas.

This particular set focuses on inspiring female authors such as Hannah Gold, Ibtihaj Muhammad, Nizrana Farook and Katherine Rundell! We’ve also got a surprise in store for National Storytelling Week, and one very happy member of staff who got the opportunity to work on it for you. Stay tuned as National Storytelling Week starts on the 29th of January and finishes on the 5th of February!

Check out all of our resources based on the works of Julia Donaldson

We LOVE Julia Donaldson and we had so much fun creating resources for the wonderful Superworm last month. These new resources are in addition to a huge selection available to use in the classroom to support her fantastic books – The Gruffalo and Stickman.

Time to Fill Your Bookshelf again as Phil brings us his latest book review

It’s another week and that means it’s time for another Fill Your Bookshelf with Phil. This week, we take a look at ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’, a book from the Brownstone’s Mythical Collection by author Joe Todd-Stanton, published by Flying Eye Books. Phil says:

Arthur and the Golden Rope by Joe Todd-Stanton is another fantastic graphic novel in the Brownstone’s Mythical Collection. Set in the age of the Vikings, it tells the tale of the heroic Arthur and his adventure to overcome a mythical beast. Full of powerful gods and magical objects, this is a gripping story that will engage children of all ages.

As with all books by Joe Todd-Stanton, the illustrations are amazing and full of humour. With lots of references to Viking gods, this book is a great one to use if your class are learning about the Vikings.”

Another glowing review from Phil! We also have another competition to run alongside this week’s book, where you could win yourself a brand new copy of the book. The same rules apply as before – you can enter via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. It’s worth a go, you could be the lucky one who wins! A quick note, we also post a video review each Thursday on our Instagram of every book chosen for Fill Your Bookshelf. The videos are great as we take a look inside the book at some of the fantastic illustrations on offer and it allows you to better visualise the book as it’s described by Phil.
