    Thank you so much for these resources. My class have just made a puppet theatre and are using it in the book corner very imaginatively so these lovely puppets will be great printed quite small and stuck on lolly sticks.

This site provides brilliant EYFS resources that I regularly use in my early years setting. All the material is bright and colourful and is great to use as part of displays. My class especially like the Elmer the Elephant section!

I love all the KS1 teaching resources from ELHQ and use them all the time at school (and at home!). The role-play section is a particular favourite, especially all the pirate related stuff.
