Why do our school subscribers recommend using Busy Things in the classroom? 

Here are just some of the highlights...

Have fun with assignments!

Within the Assignments area teachers can assign worksheets, topic work and quizzes for pupils to complete in class or at home. By viewing the results teachers can quickly gain an understanding of how their class is progressing as well as review individual strengths and weaknesses!

Bring fun into developing core knowledge, understanding and skills

Our resources cover a wide range of subjects and many of them draw upon the basic skills in reading, writing and numeracy.  Using Busy Things will help develop these skills and build confidence, acting as a springboard from which to broaden and deepen learning in general.

Tons of themed activities to support context learning all in one place!

If you employ context learning to engage pupils' interest and deepen their knowledge and understanding you'll love Busy Things!

 

You'll find lots of activities to support seasonal, topical and historical themes e.g. Spring, Ramadan, The Victorians - there are literally hundreds! 

 

We're open to suggestions too so please contact us with your requests!

Help ALL your pupils' to reach their full potential

As children learn in different ways and at different rates we have developed a spread of activities to challenge and advance knowledge and understanding in all types of learners.

 

Ranging from traditional games with a clear level progression to the more open-ended, experimental and thought provoking activities with no clear-cut right or wrong outcomes.

 

Settings within activities can be customised to support pupils' individual needs and abilities, helping you to deliver differentiated learning that recognises the unique child.

Tons of tools and features to help YOU!

Easy to customise settings, animated demos to help teach difficult concepts and a powerful curriculum search tool are just some of the features designed to make your planning and reviewing easier.

And finally, probably most importantly... children really do LOVE Busy Things!

Busy Things is built with children at the front of our minds, we create content they will enjoy playing and is able to hold their attention!

 

Full of bright colours, wacky sounds and funny animations our activities instantly engage and motivate children's learning - quite often they won't even realise they're learning!

 

“Children absolutely love it, as do us teachers. I cannot stress enough the positive impact Busy Things has had.”

 

Sam O'Regan, Wheatfield Primary School
