Twinkl Primary Resources - Review and Giveaway

As a mother to a pre-schooler about to embark on the greatest learning adventure of his little life, I was delighted to come across Twinkl Primary Resources.

For not only is Twinkl the trusted home and one stop shop for thousands of lovely, unique, printable teaching resources for teachers and home educators, it also offers a lot for parents who are on the look-out for ideas and inspiration to help their child's learning journey.

Twinkl Resources have a range of materials to cater to the needs of Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 educators. There is a section on SEN as well. There are three subscription levels to choose from: Platimum, Gold and Free.

The best part I found about Twinkl is the dynamic nature of the website. You have the option to leave feedback for every resource you try. You can also offer suggestions to improve existing resources. Even better, you can use the new Twinkl tool to create your own resources! Whatever you choose, all it takes is a quick, easy download and a printer to get you the materials you need.

If that wasn't enough, you can voice your opinion or get advice from other users on the Twinkl Forum. Whether you are looking for some inspiration or information, the Forum is the place for it. 

We have put Twinkl through its paces this summer. Learning, reward charts and timetables are all very well. But it was the ‘Activities’ section for parents which proved a huge help when I was stuck for ideas. From fun recipe cards to paper craft  to colouring-in pages, we found lots to keep us happy. 

J was particularly taken by the dot to dot work-sheets. Between pirates and dinosaurs, he had fun learning his numbers without even realising it.

Here are a few other things we found and enjoyed on the Twinkl website.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Story Sack

Turtle Paper Craft

2-D Shapes to Cut-out

I am sure we will have a lot more to do with Twinkl as J starts nursery in a few days. I am looking forward to my new journey through literacy and numeracy as J takes his first steps in the world of formal education.

You too could win yourself an annual platinum subscription to Twinkl Primary Resources. All you need to do is enter via the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!
