Christmas Worksheets at

I had a good day shopping in London yesterday - managed to get a day off! But … seeing all the Christmas lights going up and the department stores selling decorations it made me realise it wont be long until it’s “that time of year again”!

You must be thinking about all the things you have got to get done before the end of term. Have a look at the dozens of Christmas resources on Pencil Street – everything from Christmas cards and Christmas decorations to educational Christmas worksheets the children can get on with while you do a million and one other jobs!

There is going to be even more Christmas themed worksheets for teachers to use on Pencil Street than last year.

Meanwhile have a great half term. I hope you manage to relax!

P.S. If you think resources about London would be useful let me know. I’m more than happy to persuade the powers that be, that I need to go and do a bit of fieldwork!

Remembrance Day Teaching

As a teacher, whose husband is the President of the Haywards Heath Branch of the British Legion, I felt it was very important to design a wide range of high quality teaching and learning resources and worksheets for KS1 and KS2. Pencil Street Resources.

Remembrance Sunday is a very meaningful time of year for this generation of children, especially as they listen to news of our troops in Afghanistan and Libya. They are eager to find out as much as possible about the significance of 'buying' their poppies.

We hope our worksheets will provide an insight into army life and do justice the work of the British Legion.

I would love to know what you think.
