What our teachers say about our incredible primary resources…

“Busy Things supports my lesson plans and lessons very well, there are clear activities and the resources are really useful. Children can access the activities easily and the variety shows how to apply skills learned in lessons independently. Children love the animations which keep them engaged.”

Helen Butler, Oasis Academy Parkwood

“The difference that Busy Things has made to our provision and children's learning is phenomenal. Its adaptability and ease of use for both teachers and children makes it a highly accessible and valuable resource.”

Sam O'Regan, Wheatfield Primary School

Pupils can access Busy Things at home too!

“Parents rave about it, and it has helped them to see how we teach and how they can help.”

Sam O'Regan, Wheatfield Primary School

“Pupils want to go on it and tell you about how they have shared the activities with their parents. Parents have also commented how it helps them to support their own children in that they know that they are accessing something that is pitched appropriately.”

Heather Eriksen, Royston St John Baptist Church of England Primary School

Schools have the option to add Home Access for all their pupils. Children can continue to learn at home, in line with their school work. They can view their work through the My Files area and continue an activity they have worked on at school or home, sharing it with their parents or teachers. 


All of our primary school resources are mapped onto the National Curriculum, so parents can be assured that the games and activities their children are enjoying through Busy Things are purposeful and targeted to develop their child’s knowledge and skills.
