Early Learning Resources Handa's Hen Teaching Resources

Handa’s Hen

Handa’s Hen is a magical early years story by Eileen Browne. It tells the tale of Handa’s lost hen, and her quest with her friend Akeyo to find her. We will be adding more resources to this section in the weeks ahead but for now we have our original and unofficial Handa’s Hen song which reinforces certain aspects of the story and promotes basic numeracy skills at the same time.

Please note, all of the resources in this section are 100% unofficial and have not been endorsed by the author or publisher in any way. They have been designed using original ELHQ artwork in order to support the teaching of a wonderful children’s story. If you do not yet have a copy we strongly recommend that you order one!

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

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.

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!

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