If you’re a primary school teacher then we’re sure you won’t want to miss this brilliant competition to win one of ten annual subscriptions to Teaching Packs.
We’ve reviewed Teaching Packs before and the resources are first class. They’re both time-saving and inspirational, and will certainly enrich your classroom teaching. All you have to do to enter the prize draw is complete a survey. You have until 1 March 2017. Good luck with your entry.
All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning a class set of the new WeDo 2.0 Classroom Solution from LEGO Education worth £1800 is to enter your school details on the Teachwire competition page. But hurry as you only have until 12 February to enter!
The WeDo 2 core set comes with a programmable SmartHub, motor, two sensors and 280 building elements, plus software which includes one Get Started Project, delivering an introductory experience to the resource. It is designed to encourage Key Stage 2 pupils to get hands-on with science exploration by asking questions, analysing data and communicating their findings. The curriculum pack is linked to the National Curriculum providing opportunities for children to gather evidence, carry out investigations and design prototypes. There are also computing extension projects which mean that you’ll be delivering computing curriculum objectives too.
The software is available for both desktop and tablets and it provides an easy-to-use, icon-based programming environment that provides movement to pupils’ LEGO models.
All in all this is a fabulous prize!
The National Literacy Trust, a UK based charity, have an exciting competition called ‘The Editor Challenge’ where Key Stage 2 pupils have the opportunity to create their own publication. The idea behind the competition is to promote reading for pleasure and writing for a purpose.
Pupils can choose whether to work on their own issue of Girl Talk or Mega magazine published by Immediate Media. There’s a bundle of support materials such as templates, instructions and images and great prizes to be won. Activities include a celebrity feature, a review, a quiz and storyboard and a front cover.
We think kids will love these activities so why not register your school and give it a try?
We are so excited to have TEN annual subscriptions to the amazing Teaching Packs website to give away (each worth £15). Teaching Packs is not only bursting with brilliant display materials such as banners and posters, but also e-books, games, worksheets, templates, activity cards and more.
To be in with a chance of winning just head over to this post on Facebook, and follow the instructions to enter. The closing date for entries is Monday 14 September, 6pm British Summer Time!
If you’re already a subscriber to Teaching Packs it is still worth entering, as your membership will be extended for a further year. Good luck!
