All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.
