More editable resources would be good


How well does it match the curriculum?

Reasonably: It’s good enough for the money, but needs some additional resources

Great for finding last minute sheets to practise specific skills but also comes differentiated



How well does it support differentiation for the full range of the classes you use it with?

Well: A large majority of resources are suitably differentiated for pupils

Perfect for SATS or fluency practice across year groups and abilities


How well does it engage and motivate pupils?

Reasonably: We can’t use it too often or for too long

Great for practising a certain skill but not challenging or engaging enough for everyday use


How well does it support planning?

Well: It’s fairly self-contained and can be used with minimal preparation

Just select the sheets and print them off


How well does it support home use / independent learning?

Well: Pupils could be expected to use this at home or independently, with a minimum amount of support or additional resources

I often upload the sheets for remote learning


How would you rate it for value for money compared to similar resources?

Reasonably: It represents about the same value for money as similar resources I’ve seen

Cheap and quick
