ELHQ is definitely my first stop for free teaching resources for my ks1 class, as they have such a varied choice and the quality of their pictures is always amazing!

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.
