  1. Sophie Cook

    I downloaded this bundle for my Year 3 geography unit and has save many me many hours of work! The worksheets are suitably differentiated for different year groups and the PowerPoints are thorough with great images. All work links clearly to the NC and for £7 it is a bargain! I will be looking through his other units next time I plan! Thanks again, Sophie

  2. Brenda Buman

    Extremely satisfied!

  3. Maxine Al Agouri

    Brought this recently for my Year 3 class as I wanted something which was engaging, well sequenced and fully meets the NC objective. I wasn’t disappointed. The children have really enjoyed the lessons so far and have learnt lots. The best aspect of all this though has to be the time it has saved me doing this for myself.
    Thanks for the resources. I’m looking forward to finishing the unit with the children.

    Really great resource, some of the files don’t work but they appear twice in each folder which is great!

      Hi Lucy! Thank you for the lovely review. We’re concerned to hear that some of the files aren’t working in this unit. Is there any chance you could send us a screenshot of the files in Windows Explorer so we can address this issue? If possible, could you send this to ed@teachitforward.co.uk? It would be most appreciated! Ed, Teach It Forward

    This resource is fantastic – and is exactly what I needed. It covers all required areas of the NC, and the differentiated resources are fabulous. This has saved me hours of work and I know the children in my class will love it! Thank you. So easily worth £7 (for my sanity alone!)
