Twinkl Review

Tags: website review, printable resources

Section: Reviews is a website which provides hand-drawn resources for primary schools and educational settings, as well as for parents to use in the home. There are over 60,000 resources ready for you to access as well as the option of upgrading to a premium subscription (£29.99 for a years subscription), which is well worth it for the extra 10,000 wonderful resources available.

As a Mum at home with two children, I particularly like the parents section of the site. The parent’s resources provide some really helpful signs and labels to use around the home. These include labels for familiar objects around the home, visual timetables (great for trying to get reluctant children to get dressed in the morning) and some useful toileting reminders (one of the many excellent premium resources). There are also an array of different reward charts and certificates to encourage positive behaviour- I can definitely see these being useful in our house some days!

In addition to all of these helpful ‘around the home’ resources there are also some great activities to encourage learning in both numbers and letters, colouring sheets (from well-loved stories such as The Gruffalo) as well as ideas to promote fine manipulative skills. The number and letter resources include some lovely colourful letters and numbers for displaying and some play dough mats which are brilliant for some hands on learning about quantities and letter formation.

Brilliant for this time of year there are a large range of fabulous Christmas resources. There are a variety of labels and signs great for the classroom or displaying around the home, templates for those all-important Santa letters and Christmas themed colouring sheets and size ordering activities. There is also a wide range of resources to help introduce the Nativity to young children such as stick puppets, Christmas story sequencing and masks for role play.

Ordering objects in size - much more fun when they're Christmas themed!

Overall Twinkl is a brilliant website which has so many useful resources to explore. It covers a wide range of different learning areas and we will definitely be revisiting this site many times in the future!
