Plot Blocks™ was developed in-house by the Product Development team and Educational Specialists here at Learning Resources, based upon feedback from teachers saying that they would benefit from activities that would go alongside story telling cubes. By combining a multitude of different settings, characters, objects and actions, this engaging set supports children in creating unique stories by rolling the picture cubes.
Spring time represents a flourishing stage of development with colourful blossoms and longer daylight hours. With only a few months until the end of the school year, it’s the perfect time to support hands-on learning at home as well as encouraging outdoor exploration and discovery. Learning Resources have introduced over 90 new educational toys and games for 2016, and we have selected a few of our favourites, to highlight the key benefits and skills that they help to support.
Learning Resources was presented with an Education Resources Award in the ‘Primary Resource or Equipment – Curriculum learning resources including ICT’ category for its STEM Robot Mouse Activity Set. Held on the 18th of March, the awards honour the quality and diversity of products, schools and the most dedicated members of the education sector. In their eighteenth successful year, the awards are organised by BESA, the trade association representing educational suppliers in the UK sector, and Brilliant Marketing Solutions.
