Marhc, Newsletters, Easter, Spring, Resources

In this month’s newsletters, we highlighted our favourite resources for Easter and spring, and also included student-led revision activities in time for external and internal assessments.

Early years and primary

For EYFS, we looked at Easter story activities, including a consolidatory sequencing task, and seasonal fun came in the form of a creative craft pack. Plus, this month, morning challenge questions £3 and a ladybird lotto counting game were among the most popular resources.

In primary, we celebrated Shakespeare Week and also made some timely cross-curricular links with an Easter number trail. Maths ruled the roost with fraction worksheets being most downloaded, and there's no surprise to see a KS2 Sats revision booklet £3.50 in the March bestsellers list.

Secondary English, maths and science

In terms of the core subjects, the focus was firmly on revision. A calculus pack and matrices lesson were on the cards for maths teachers, with revision presentations being the order of the day in the bestsellers and top downloads.

English teachers were treated to a more detailed look at the cultural approaches and context collections from our Teaching Shakespeare site. Meanwhile, popular resources included an IGCSE language pack £8 and creative writing mats for revision.

Independent revision support for students was the key in science, including guided revision sheets for biology, revision flashcards for chemistry and reference sheets for A-level particle physics.

Blog highlights

You may also have seen our featured blog posts, from Easter resources treats and springtime fun for early years and primary teachers, to the pick of the revision crop for secondary teachers, and not forgetting a round-up of the inspiring Huge History lesson competition.

We also send secondary newsletters to other subject teachers, from art and design, MFL and PE, to DT, RE and history. Geography and computing teachers, you’re in too!
