Thinking Child

Average Rating4.53
(based on 9 reviews)

I wrote and co-wrote these resources for teaching literacy, numeracy, thinking skills/P4C and Outdoor Learning ideas. I own Thinking Child and we used to publish beautiful 'hard copy' resources for schools. These are a selection of those - some are free - some now sold at a bargain price - to make them as accessible as possible to teachers and children.
