School holidays are a great time to talk to children about travelling. Whether it’s heading to Grandma’s in the car, taking the train to the city or flying over to your favourite holiday destination, families always seem to travel somewhere in the holidays! There are so many methods of travelling nowadays, and we can get pretty much anywhere in the world. With this kind of freedom and access to new cultures, it’s no wonder the world is changing at the rate that it is!
Do you have avid dinosaur fans in your family? Maybe you’re a childminder whose mindees are obsessed with the prehistoric beings? Our dinosaur themed hands-on resources will keep all youngsters amused and learning through play!

2014 has seen the birth of our Toy Testing Team here at Learning Resources! We’re intrigued by the world of mummy blogging which seems to be spreading like wild fire!

Keeping the children entertained for a full six weeks can be a costly, the price of everything seems to have shot up lately. I recently went to an outside summer festival and paid £3 for an ice-cream! They’re certainly not known as 99’s anymore!
This summer we’re running a parent campaign to help you keep your youngsters occupied during the long holiday, whatever the weather! All the items in our Summer Savers category are Buy One Get One Free for the whole summer! Quote SUMMERSAVERS14 when you place your order.
Most schools in the UK will be breaking up in the next few days, the summer holidays are here!
Do you dread six weeks of having the children at home, or do you love having them around more? There have been many debates in both teacher and parent forums online discussing if six weeks is too long for a school holiday or if a four week summer holiday would be more beneficial, and as you’d expect, there are arguments for both! Many parents struggle to afford child care for the full six weeks, and more frequent, shorter holidays would be much more manageable. On the other hand, for many families the six week holiday is the highlight of the year that they spend months looking forward to and planning. I don’t think a decision will ever be made to please everyone, but we can certainly make the most of what’s on offer around us.
I’d like to introduce you to some of the inspirational people we collaborate with here at Learning Resources to ensure that the products we offer are the very best in hands-on resources! By working with experts, we know we can offer you the best help and support, through tried and tested content which we know works in the classroom!
