What our teachers say...

“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. It's adaptability and ease of use for both teachers and children makes it a highly accessible and valuable resource.”

Sam O'Regan, Wheatfield Primary School
