Classroom Organisation –  Pineapple Style

Daily warm-ups prepare students for learning and increase levels of participation in the classroom. Simply display an activity on your interactive whiteboard when students enter class each day or return from a break.

Let’s Cooperate Code Cracker

Now, this is important…

For you to experience your best year yet, you need to invest time in team building. For this reason, we have included our Let’s Cooperate Code Cracker – Upper Primary. This teaching resource will encourage your students to work as a team like never before…


Let’s Cooperate Code Cracker – Upper Primary includes an introductory poem, six puzzle activities and a final riddle. Students work in groups to solve each puzzle in order to reveal six numbers. Next, students combine the numbers and work out the number order to open a lock combination.

Wheely Wonderful Words

Vocabulary development is essential for reading comprehension, writing quality, listening vocabulary and speaking vocabulary. With this in mind, we have created a new,  hands-on learning tool to get your head in a spin!


This unique Year 6 teaching resource is curriculum-aligned for the upper years and is perfect to use when exploring the effect of using vocabulary to express greater precision of meaning.

STEM Challenge Task Cards for Upper Years.

These must-have STEM tasks enable students to use a variety of materials to design and make new products or to solve design challenges. The tasks cover a range of time allocations, making them ideal for either a quick activity or a more extended lesson.
