Headteacher Magazine, guide to services and products for UK Schools
Award-winning classroom resources created by the team at The Week Junior are now available for teachers, librarians and other school staff to download for free.
The new resource bank on The Week Junior’s website for schools is designed to help teaching staff save time and money.
The free resources include The Week Junior’s popular All About series. These engaging and topical features encompass a range of subject areas relevant for KS2 and KS3 pupils, including history, geography, science and English. Each fact-filled article focuses on a specific topic such as the Houses of Parliament, recycling, human rights, refugees and The Great Fire of London.
The clear and colourful layouts will appeal to young people and the carefully researched content can be used to support the curriculum in a number of ways, for example: exploring a curriculum topic with pupils, forming the basis of a research project, an extra-curricular reading exercise or as part of an English lesson.
New resources and topics will be made available to download every week. They can be accessed from The Week Junior Schools website: www.schools.theweekjunior.co.uk
Anna Bassi, Editor at The Week Junior commented: “Having worked closely with schools since our launch in 2015, we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from teachers using the magazine. We know that resources that support teachers in their lessons are a real help for many schools and our All About series in particular has proven to be a great resource for classrooms.
“The work we do to bring information to children in a way that resonates with them is rewarding, and we realised that extending this to teachers to help save time makes it even more so. Students really engage with the fun and colourful All About features, which explain topics in an interesting and age-appropriate way. We’re thrilled to be able to give more teachers the opportunity to spark their pupils’ interest by providing free resources.”
Maddy Barnes, English consultant and Assistant Head Teacher at Sacred Heart Catholic School said: “We love using the ‘All About’ pages at Sacred Heart Catholic School. The way each topic is presented and explained sparks students’ interest right away and the fact that this not only supports curriculum learning but also helps other areas of development including reading and critical thinking really does make it a tremendously useful resource.
“I’m so pleased other teachers will be able to access this fantastic resource for free. Your pupils will be asking when the next topic is available to download!”
