Bought as a Christmas gift, the case is very robust yet not too heavy for a twenty five mile commute.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adds an allure of sparkle, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An ideal recorder for my beginner 'flootltootlers'! The pitch is accurate and the tone is excellent considering the cost of the instrument. This (and other) coloured instruments makes learning the recorder a little more fun, particularly when combined with the 'Recorder Karate' belts - helping to lift this underrated instrument into the realms of 'almost trendy'! We have a burgeoning rainbow assortment of colours in our club now. It certainly makes the grind of learning new notes a little more cheerful!!


The Fossil Girl
The Fossil Girl

5.0 out of 5 stars Captured the imagination and interest of my Year 2 class, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fossil Girl (Paperback)
A well-crafted story based on fact with delightful illustrations. All of my class loved the story of Mary Anning as they became more obsessed with fossils! It has even inspired some of my children to beg visits to Lyme Regis with their parents! I was particularly glad to find a book which 'stars' a girl in a scientific role. This was inspirational for the girls as, all too often, 'fun' and interesting discoveries are perceived to be achieved by/more for the masculine gender and this is a stereotype that we are working hard to address.

Ideal for beginners of the recorder as they tend to dribble more! This mop is ideal as it is washable and robust.


Naturetrails: Rocks and Fossils (Usborne Nature Trail)
Naturetrails: Rocks and Fossils (Usborne Nature Trail)
by Struan Reid
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal For All Budding Palaeontologists!, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as part of our growing 'library' of dinosaur-related topic books. This appeals to the more able 7-year old readers in my class as the vocabulary is challenging but the pictorial content of the book is superb (as is usual from Usborne) so that it still appeals to those whose reading skills may not be quite so developed.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit dry but good as a background reference., 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fascinating period in history and this book works well for background scene-setting and 'fleshing out' details to add depth to the reader's knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal as a little treat, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Dinosaur Tattoos (Toy)
I ordered these to give one to each child in my class when introducing our 'Dinosaurs' topic at the start of September as a 'bonding' device. This worked really well as it made them feel part of a palaeontological team! They also gave the children lots to think and talk about - immediately firing their interest, curiosity and desire to find out about their particular dinosaur depicted in their tattoo. A big hit for a few pence each! Will definitely purchase again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for Role Play, 8 Mar 2014

Comfortabl masks for children to wear. They loved making up dinosaur plays and stories using these. Beware! The elastic is apt to come adrift so it is worth strengthening the fixings before releasing the masks into the hands of budding thespians!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed models to make a 'fossil' for each child palaeontologist in my class! When wrapped in modelling clay these worked a treat. They are big enough for the children to handle easily but small enough to prevent this activity from becoming too costly!


King Arthur (Usborne paperbacks)
King Arthur (Usborne paperbacks)
by Mike Stocks
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal as an introduction to the legends of King Arthur, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as an introduction to the legends of King Arthur during our class topic "Knights, Castles, Princesses and Dragons!" My Year 2 class were instantly hooked! The vocabulary is challenging enough for the majority of the class but accessible enough so as not to detract from the enjoyment. It is also a good starting point for extending the more able (e.g. by researching synonyms and antonyms of words used in the book). Suddenly I have a class full of Arthurian fans, some of whom are already reading other books about this fascinating legend and realm.
