Resources in demand in May

Here’s our May round-up of what teachers will be searching for. This month, we’ve highlighted the primary and secondary topics most in demand.

We’re continuing to improve the insights we give you and this month we’re sharing popular search terms for even more subjects including art, music, computing and PE, and for both primary and secondary resources. The italicised keywords in the list below can be applied to primary resources.

Similarly to last month, we’re sharing a new set of topics to help you decide which resources to create and share. Because there are fewer resources available on Tes for these topics, there’s space to be filled with your high quality materials. We also know there’s strong interest in these topics, but not the right resources available, since they receive frequent views but don’t always attract downloads.

Happy uploading!
