This is a coleect of prompmts that I use to cover a wide range of different topics in my starters. I might use a collect of different weights and then give each pair the laminated "scales" and they have to add them up and show "how much they weigh". The digital clocks can be laminated an then used to convert analogue times. Can the children match the net with the 3d shape?

    A good set of resources. However the font and writing weren't very clear and could do with a bit of tweaking.
