Welcome to the Teaching and Learning Resources Website! Whether you are a teacher or a pupil, from the UK or overseas, I am sure you will find something of interest here.

The purpose of this site is to provide stimulating, interactive resources for children in Key Stage 2 (ages 7 to 11) of Primary School.

In the Learning section, you will find specially created interactive resources written to support learning in Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum for England and Wales. All the resources in this section have been written by myself, a fully-qualified teacher with over 17 years' experience in the classroom teaching pupils aged 7 to 13. Resources include crosswords, multiple choice exercises, cloze procedure, wordsearches, web quests, games and more.

Teachers will find a wealth of subject-related external links in the Teaching section, to assist with planning work for pupils or to research topics.

The Fun pages contain external links to educational sites for children aged 5 to 11, where the emphasis is on learning through having fun! There are also some activities written by me, such as seasonal games, as well as Music crosswords and a Welsh language crossword.

This section collates many of the activities from the Learning and Fun sections of my site by type rather than by subject. It makes it much easier for you to find another activity of the same type if you particularly enjoyed a certain activity. The more formal multiple choice quizzes and quizzes where you have to type in the correct answer are not listed, however, as they are just too numerous! These are still to be found in the relevant subject area in the Learning section.

Looking for something specific?
Search my site. 

Hint - if you want to search for a phrase, e.g. Easter crossword, wrap the words in speech marks like this - "Easter crossword". This tells the search engine to look for pages with this exact phrase, otherwise you will get every page listed that contains the word "Easter" as well as every page that contains the word "wordsearch".
