Rainbow Wishes

This display pack – Rainbow Wishes, would make a wonderful little addition to your KS1 classroom next year! Rainbow Wishes is great for aspirations, weekly provision, or to use as part of the PSHE curriculum. Children can use the four-leaf clovers to write down their wish and pin them around the rainbow to remind them of their aims that term.

Our Families Display Pack

If you’ve been looking for some wonderful Display Packs to use in your classroom in preparation for Autumn, then why not check out some of our Display Packs on our site? This week, the Our Families Display Pack has been an incredibly popular download as we move on into the six weeks holidays. The ‘Our Families’ pack goes over Family, Culture and British Values.

Resources included are –

  • Activity Outline For Families Display
  • Large Display Lettering
  • Display Banner
  • Key Questions
  • Example Letter Explaining About The Display

Flower Clock Template

Another fantastic resource to use in Autumn, this Flower Clock is PERFECT for you to create your own Flower Clock for children to practice with or it could be stuck on to your existing clock. We also have other Flower Clock resources available too, as we also have a Advanced Time Telling Flower Clock containing 24 hour times and a Large Display Flower Clock too!

It’s time to Fill Your Bookshelf with Phil’s latest review!

Phil’s latest book review comes in the form of ‘When The Sky Falls’, written by Phil Earle.

Phil says ‘When The Sky falls is a fantastically moving portrayal of life during World War 2 for the children who weren’t evacuated away from danger. It tells the story of an angry young boy who is sent to live with a woman in the city. She owns a rundown zoo and struggles to feed the few remaining animals in a time where even the human food was strictly rationed. Her pride and joy is the zoo’s silverback gorilla, Adonis. To the backdrop of falling bombs, an incredible story unfolds that will enthral and astound in equal measure. A great book to read for your own pleasure, but would also be a fantastic class read for the right Year 6 class.’

Certainly a glowing review! Got any suggestions on what to read next? Leave a comment below!
