Free teaching resources

We have five free teaching packs, which are made up of innovative lesson plans and accompanying materials. You can browse and download them all via the links below.

If you would like to have hard copies of the packs posted to you (completely free!), please click here.

We can also come to your school and facilitate the lessons ourselves, so that your students can have a fresh perspective and you can take a bit of a break! Find out more here.
