La chica del tren: Nivel 0
La chica del tren: Nivel 0
by Jordi Suris
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Great language practise, 10 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed reading this and certainly provided satisfaction to be able to read an entertaining story in Spanish. That said the book is levelled at A1 but I think the range of vocabulary \tenses are actually more advanced than this!


Mental Maths Mindstretchers 7-9
Mental Maths Mindstretchers 7-9
by Andrew Brodie
Edition: CD-ROM
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful resource, 2 Nov. 2011
These photocopiable activites involve children in fitting given numbers into the equation so that both sides are correct. Initally the target number is given and they just have to fit in the remaining digits but the complexity increases and on the harder puzzle they also have to figure out which number will go in the centre box.

The Adventures of Captain Underpants Collectors' Editon with CD
by Dav Pilkey
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Pant-astic!, 2 Nov. 2011
As an adult the captain underpants stories don't hold any appeal for me whatsoever. However the 7-8 year olds I read this with loved it and were laughing out loud at some parts. The CD has some songs (with videos) which they enjoyed and also some printable colouring activities.

These are a really useful resource particularly get children used to answering questions from a CD. The photocopiable answer sheets are also in the same format as a KS2 test. These second book offers slighly more challenging questions than the first volume.

Nobody Owns the Sky: The Story of "Brave Bessie" Coleman
Nobody Owns the Sky: The Story of "Brave Bessie" Coleman
by Reeve Lindbergh
Edition: School & Library Binding
Price: £11.09

3.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational story, 2 Nov. 2011
This tells the story of Bessie Coleman. Reading it with 7-8 year olds they really enjoyed the story and quickly adopted Bessie's catch phrase that 'nobody owns the sky'. It's written in rhyme which personally I wasn't keen on, but still an inspirational and true story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful resource, 2 Nov. 2011
A great photcopiable resource. Each page has a different activity to develop cutting skills for example a bookmark and a spiral snake. The resources gradually increase in difficulty with regards to the cutting skills they're developing - starting with cutting a straight line, cutting to a point, cutting on a curve etc

I downloaded this track to play at a children's party and it proved very popular. Got everybody up and dancing. A great track to workout to as well!

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book, 2 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Babushka (Hardcover)
This is a great story to read with children story, and generally lesser known than the traditional story. This version is hardback and beautifully illustrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource, 2 Nov. 2011
Really like these books. Each photocopiable page covers a different mental maths objective (the first is addition facts within 10, the second subtraction facts within 10) with 4 separate columns of sums. Children get a minute to attempt a column the aim being to achieve at least 20 out of 24 questions correct. Have been using these daily with my class and am really seeing an improvement in their maths, plus they really enjoy doing it and will remind me if I've forgotten that day!
