Rocket Review

The blog this week is from Learn From Play's new blog post contributor Shane Hill. An educational presenter who has worked with more than 18,000 students, teachers and parents in hundreds of schools he knows a thing or two about creating innovative games and activities to motivate students and make learning fun.

Shane's article this week is a wonderful idea for making revision active and fun for you and your students. It is the perfect way to finish the day so students go home happy and you know they have learnt the content you have taught.

FREE CBCA Book Activities

This week's FREE book activities are based on a teacher's request for more CBCA books. There are only a few left that we haven't released and this is one of them.

One Runaway Rabbit by David Metzenthen and Mairead Murphy is a CBCA shortlisted Young Children’s Book of the Year for 2020. It follows Lulu the rabbit as she escapes from her backyard via a hole in the fence and is almost dinner for a hungry fox. Activities for this book include making shadow puppets, handwriting, rabbit craft, night and day, word matching and simple rabbit maths. These are available as both printed and on-line worksheets plus a maze, memory and puzzle game can be played on-line too.

New Poster
