The Sloth Who Could Not Sleep
The Sloth Who Could Not Sleep
by Samantha Brenton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable author & incredible adventure, 15 Mar. 2016
A roller-coaster, real page turner, rainforest adventure for Dylan the sloth as his entire world is thrown into complete chaos. Suddenly awoken, he is faced with instant uncertainty and fear of loosing everyone and everything he has ever known.

His brief introduction to Viva the tenacious butterfly, is abruptly cut short as she flys off in search of answers, leaving Dylan alone in his familiar tree. Viva unknowingly becomes Dylan's focus to come through this devastating turn of events. Dylan decides to find out for himself exactly what is happening to the forest but to do that he must locate Viva. This terrified sloth leaves behind the once secure tree he calls home and embarks on the adventure of a lifetime.

Along the way, he faces potentially life threatening situations for a slow moving animal low down the food chain. He keeps a level head throughout and embraces adversity and diversity. He accepts the unfamiliar and unconventional, making the unlikeliest friends, accepting the most bizarre help and giving back what he never knew was even possible. He also finds out what humans are and exactly what catastrophic devastation they are capable of.

Just as Dylan reaches an emotional low and starts to loose all hope of ever finding Viva again, life takes a sudden and dramatic turn. There is a life changing decision to be made immediately and bravery surfaces from deep within Dylan. He rises up to this seemingly overwhelmingly impossible challenge, forging ahead towards a new future whilst accepting the past has to be left behind forever.

If only all humans chose to be as these animals are, our world would be a better place. This fable certainly stays with you, long after the final word is read; a powerful read, so many questions arise as this fable is completely relevant to our world we live in today, on many levels.

The language is utterly vibrant and hugely progressive in itself. This thin, thirteen chapter paperback with ninety six pages, is brimming with intelligence, positively oozing potential for further study and class projects. Text only, allows imagination to flourish unhindered by an artists impression, apart from the stunning and enticing cover!

Samantha Brenton is a remarkable author. She has taken us through a truly incredible adventure and right out of our comfort zone. We really were journeying through the rainforest with Dylan and seeing life through his eyes, the unexpected leaping right out at every turn. We feel better for experiencing this fable and only hope there is an extension to this; we so want to know how Dylan's life progresses and if he ever sees his dear friend Jules again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Weighing up the pros & cons..., 11 Mar. 2016
Designed as a basic set of primary age scales, all components are moulded from durable, easy clean plastic. A wide base provides stability with a handy integral drawer to keep secret treasures, weights or surprise objects to weigh. Double arms offer stability, with an integral balance slide adjuster weight on each. The included small folded information sheet only gives an outline of the scales, set up and states these are 'basic scales'.

Both clear buckets have an easy pour spout and stable bases. These can stand alone or attach to the yellow arms, with their moulded hooks. These hooks are fiddly to attach, so the buckets are easily knocked off; a poor design causing frustration... and mess if filled with liquid! We used food colouring to increase visibility against the approximate measuring guides. These are embossed on two sides of each bucket, one set reversed to read from inside the buckets. Lined increments of 50 mls with measurements of 100 mls up to 400 ml.

Each bucket has a shallow red flat lid which is fiddly to attach and easily knocked off. These offer a surface for objects to be placed on top, giving a more direct visual connection with the items and scales. We used the hexagonal weights and Three Bear Family Counters with our scales to give a comprehensive resource.

Scales set up with lids spout outwards, approx measurements:
Length 40 cm 15 ¾''
Width 13.5 cm 5 ¼''
Height 15 cm 6 ''
Blue Base Length 12.5 cm 4 7/8 '' Width 13 cm 5''

For us, these scales have proved useful over the years, they enabled practice how to use scales correctly and why that's important, understanding objects have their own weight and liquids have their own volume, using objects vs liquid, predicting weight and volume, capacity of different shaped and sized containers pouring liquid or split lentils into the buckets, patients and enhanced shop role play. Because of the fiddly design of the hooks and lid, I have to give 4 stars; however, we weighed up these factors and have no regret purchasing these scales!


Learning Resources Metric Weight Set
Learning Resources Metric Weight Set
Price: £9.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait!, 6 Mar. 2016
Ideal introductory set of metric weights, for foundation level through the primary years. A good basic set of 54 hexagonal shaped weights, comprising of:
1 g X 20 RED
5 g X 20 BLUE
10 g X 10 GREEN
20 g X 4 YELLOW
Total 300 g

Having checked each weight on my kitchen digital scales, our weights seem to be accurate apart from a few of the 5 g blue weights, which registered as 4 g. As these were purchased for early learning experience, this was not an issue for us. This set certainly gives a broad spectrum of basic weighing experience. We used our set with the Bucket Balance Scales and The Three Bear Family counters, which we also recommend.

CE lid label with ' chocking hazard ' warning, not for under three's. Box with lid attached measurements approx:
Length 17 cm
Width 12 cm
Height 4.5 cm

Weights are all the same DIAMETER: Max approx 33 mm - Min approx 28 mm.
DEPTH according to weight varies: thinnest 1 g approx 3 mm -  thickest 20 g 32 mm.

Although the weights are made from a sturdy hard plastic, I have seen school sets with slightly worn and chipped corners. These fit within their sturdy box with secure clip on lid; however, patients is required to place the weights on top of each other to fit them all in. It would help if the raised section on top of each weight was deeper. As this box is a handy size, we chose not to opt for a larger storage container, patients is a good quality to learn too!

These weights helped with comparisons, tower heights, patterning and predictions. Fitting them inside their box also lead us to look at other shapes and how they fit within different boundaries and each other. Many random items were weighed both outside and inside. This set proved a useful addition along with the scales, for shop role play too.

Through practice, the ability to use scales correctly and establish a ' fairly accurate' measurement has now been learnt. A good sense of how heavy weights feel, was learnt through games using a scarf to cover the eyes for 'guess the weight' of these weights and objects. These were definitely an asset for our foundation learning needs. At the time they were hard to get – out of stock, so well worth the wait for these weights!


One Witch
One Witch

Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Leave your comfort zone for a scary giggle!, 5 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One Witch (Paperback)
Renewed continuously from our local library, inevitably I bought our own copy! We found this a smidge scary initially, in a child-like way. Cover appeal certainly creepily delivered ,with it's dark intrigue, prompting immediate further investigation by our 4 yr old daughter. From the very first time sharing this book, we talked about fictional, make believe again as a reminder this was not real. She relished the creepy, spookily drawn characters lurking amongst the pages and the wickedly witchy verses. From the first moment, she loved this book; so had many before as it was a very love worn copy we borrowed.

Our little girl was particularity delighted the entire story was about making a witchy soup. She adores creating her own witchy brews in the garden and the verses were giving her renewed ' culinary ' enthusiasm! A rhythmic flow continues as the story unfolds and each foul ingredient is found, enhancing the enjoyment. We searched for all the rhyming words and made our own. Word numbers are an integral part of this story verse; we matched words to the numerals, counted forwards and backwards and counted the things we could find within the detailed illustrations. Imaginative drawings, paintings and little creepy stories with cackling voice were inspired from this book too.

Prepare to meet creepy crawlies, strange looking goblins and ghosts, laughing vampires and dancing skeletons, standing mummies and werewolves with lots of teeth, helpful bats and cats clawing... Considering we only do the pumpkin aspect of Halloween, ' One Witch ' is still a favourite and has been for some years now. It's good to leave your comfort zone, this was no exception!

5.0 out of 5 stars Care not a jot what the weather does!, 4 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We find ' rukka ' to be the best all-terrain gear for the job and we are not alone, as it's been around since the 1950's. Unique Finish design & quality, providing outstanding rain repellency whilst comfortably light to wear. All seams are heat sealed for optimum protection against the elements and the fabric is breathable. Water literally cascades right off this fabric! Approx measurements:-

JACKET: size 146 11yrs ( laid flat )
Chest under arm to under arm 21 ½ '' 54.5 cm
Sleeve under arm to cuff 16 '' 41 cm
Under arm to hem 14 '' 36 cm
Centre back neck seam to hem 23 ½ '' 60 cm
Hem edge to edge widest width 20 ½ '' 52 cm
Hem edge to edge narrowest width 16 '' 41 cm ( two adjustment options )

Jacket Features:
Front press stud fasteners, all embossed ' rukka '.
Side hem press studs, for a snug fit.
Elasticated cuffs.
Integral hood with elasticated sides.
One right front pocket, with over flap bearing ' rukka ' logo.
Reflective silver strip on left arm, running over the top.
Integral name label for permanent marker pen ( with teddy bear, perhaps young for intended age ).
Care label Machine 30°C and do not tumble dry.

OVER TROUSERS: size 146 11yrs ( laid flat )
Waist edge to edge unstretched 11 '' 28 cm
Waist edge to edge comfortably stretched 15 '' 38 cm
Inside Leg crotch to hem 24 ½ '' 62 cm

Leg bottom widest width 9 '' 23 cm
Leg bottom narrowest width 7 ½ '' 19 cm ( one adjustment option )

Over Trouser Features:
Cuff press stud fasteners, for a snug fit over wellies and a slightly shorter length.
Elasticated waist, sadly not adjustable.
( No side slits for inner trouser pocket access so totally waterproof ).
Reflective silver strip left lower leg, both sides.
Integral name label for permanent marker pen ( with teddy bear, perhaps young for intended age ).
Care label Machine 30°C and do not tumble dry.
Sturdy silver ribbon loop with ' genuine rukka garment' printed.

Our 146 11 year size was for a 9 yr old which gives a slightly baggy fit, just what we wanted. For us the trouser length is spot on, so too the jacket sleeves. The jacket fits well over a winter coat and the trousers fit well over lined jeans with no restriction of movement. If worn as the only outer wear, both garments are obviously baggy, though not ridiculously big! Looking at this fit for a 9 year old, I don't think the trouser legs and jacket sleeves would fit an 11 year old.

Improvements we feel: advantageous for the trouser waist would be an elastic pull cord with locking toggle. The jacket body length could do with being 2" longer ideally when worn over a ¾ length coat, to completely cover the hem.

The bright yellow is superb for dusky days and evenings, giving extra visibility along with the light reflective strips. We find rukka looks better when 'worn in' as a few marks gives them street cred, a bit like Dr Marten's! We have come to rely on rukka over the years and most of our family wear it; giving us years of ' caring not a jot what the weather throws at us! '. As the saying goes... there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate apparel!


Learning Resources Tri-FACTaTM Addition and Subtraction
Learning Resources Tri-FACTaTM Addition and Subtraction
Price: £14.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Positive Addition!, 3 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Colours Sky blue & orange, trendy & inviting. Guide age 6+ though ability is individual. Our set is for home use but this would withstand classroom & group community use. Design is gender & age neutral, ideal for mature students or SEN pupils. 'Fact Family' knowledge & understanding, is part of the national curriculum. "...the group of 4 math facts produced by the relationships between the 3 numbers in a fact triangle....". For example:

3 + 4 = 7
7 - 3 = 4
4 + 3 = 7
7 - 4 = 3

BOX: quality thick laminated card, long term safe storage. Depth approx 6 cm, Sides 35 cm. Clear plastic insert with centre gap to keep the cards.
CENTRE BOARD: strong plastic with laminated decal upper surface & non slip foam patch underneath. Sides approx 25 cm.
TRAYS X 4: orange strong plastic triangular prism shape, sloping with lower edge to retain cards. Height approx just over 3 cm, Width at base just over 3.5 cm, Length just over 3.5 cm.
tri-FACTa CARDS X 100: laminated, white with orange numbers upper side, logo & colours on reverse. Sides approx 5 cm. We keep ours safe inside a small zip-lock bag.

INFORMATION SHEET: Learning resources: English, Spanish, French & Dutch instructions & ideas. Taken from the information sheet..." Object of the game: Be the first player to play all your cards and call out "tri-FACTa!".

" SET UP:
1.....Arrange the cards face down around the board.
2. Each player takes a tray, chooses 6 cards and places the cards in the tray. Hint:...numerical order... might make game play easier.
3. Make sure all players understand the relationships between the numbers in a fact triangle in which the two bottom numbers add up to the number at the top ".

Basic understanding of number relations, with reverse addition & subtraction is important to enjoy & understand game play. Without a foundation knowledge, this game could prove counter productive. Through playing, number experiences will be reinforced, then increased, so improving confidence & thinking ability. We found this a positive addition to our resource cupboard. Confidence has grown with quicker thinking skills & better understanding of the Fact Families. From the information sheet...

" To Start: The player who can make a true fact triangle with three cards goes first. If more than one player....player with the largest sum begins the game.... place new cards on top of existing cards on the board... turn the board to face the next player! ".

" To play:
1. To take a turn, you must play 2 or 3 ...cards to create a true fact triangle...addition and subtraction the numbers in the triangle show both relationships!
2.... cannot take a turn, choose 1 card from the pile and add it to your tray... can take a turn now, go ahead! If not, keep the card...play continues.
3....incorrect fact triangle, take your cards back...next player's turn.
4. WILD CARDS: ... play it as any number up to 20. Say the value of the card...when you play it...value of that card doesn't change.
5. To win...first player to play all your cards and call out " tri-FACTa! "
NOTE: ...all cards are gone from the centre pile and a winner has not been declared, the player who has the fewest cards in... tray wins ".

We started with only lower, single number values, gradually increasing difficulty; this game is easily adapted to the individual. Initially we used counters to match up with the cards. This gave visual reinforcement, increasing physical understanding of written number connections. Written numbers alone can seem surreal, physically handling objects made them real. We also made our own cards, increasing possibilities as skills improved. Superb game for the entire family... which becomes greatly competitive when against the clock to 'beat your best!'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bear Necessities!, 2 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautifully tactile, chunky bears made from quality moulded hard plastic. Each has identical embossed fur, paw & facial details, rather cute! Three sizes; Large, Medium & Small. Six vibrant colours; Red, Blue, Yellow, Purple, Green & Orange. Three weights; Large 12 g, Medium 8 g, Small 4 g. CE Learning Resources guide sheet included. Total 96 bears comprising of:

Large 24 bears ( 4 each colour ) Height approx just under 4 cm 1 ½ “
Medium 24 bears ( 4 each colour ) Height approx just under 3.5 cm 1 ¼ “
Small 48 bears ( 8 each colour ) Height approx just over 2.5 cm 1 “

All bears are in the sitting position, so easy to use & position. Small bears have a small circular indentation on the base. Medium bears, a small circular hole & large bears have a large circular hole, as though a pencil topper. These aren't toppers, I guess this is for the correct weight of plastic. They all live happily in the tub when not getting up to mischief. The clear tub plastic is brittle. Flexible lid plastic pushes over the tub, giving a snug and secure fit.

From the guide sheet...
“ Three Bear Family Counters are perfect for helping young children act out and understand abstract math concepts. These adorable counters are also great for imaginative play! “...

“ Activities focus on these number concepts; Sorting, comparing sets, addition, counting, estimating, subtraction, visual memory, patterning and sequencing “...

The guide sheet gives a brief synopsis for the following activities...
“ Sorting by Colour and Size, A Colour Parade, Counting, Zoo Bears, Counting Game, Estimating, Visual Memory, Sequencing, Number Stories and Zero Bears “.

Initially I handed the bucket full over to my little one, 2 ½ yrs, with me. Shrieks of laughter followed from the first look & joy handling them to positioning them in lines & sorting into colours. These make a satisfying sound all mixed together in a large bowl, they feel wonderful too.

We have used our bears in a variety of ways over the years, both inside & out, from informal exploratory, imaginative play, through to formal math sessions. Sometimes we used their bucket balance scales, which we recommend too. They have been put into random containers & little bags, giving capacity experience, hidden in sand with glitter & shaving foam; great to feel the sizes asked for & splashed in coloured water. They have been printed with, leading to matching the bear to the same colour & pattern sequencing. Sorted into colour, size & weight sets. They have helped with addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, memory games, estimating & find the bear. They have been used as ingredients in the play kitchen & in muddy witchy brews too, not one complained! Imagination & language flourished as wonderful stories were told through these bears, in their own right & with other toys. They proved useful with preposition understanding too, the bear is on, under etc.

These little bears have certainly played their part, adding to real life numeracy & literacy experiences. Also ours have proved over the years, enduring pretty intense play... to be indestructible! These are definitely keepers; hopefully grandchildren will create their own magic one day.
