"In our school we use New Wave Mental Maths in all classes from 1st class to 6th class. It is a fantastic resource and we have seen great gains in the mathematical abilities of our pupils since adopting this scheme. It covers all strands daily and that there is repetition of types of questions weekly. Children gain in confidence as they come across topics in their Mental Maths book before they work on these topics in their textbooks. A must for all booklists."

Cathy Power

I think Reading with Me is a great resource for young readers. I feel that it can be used in a very effective way especially in small group settings through station teaching and through SET withdrawals, but is flexible to all settings. The use of a dyslexia-friendly font is a huge development and shows a huge commitment from Prim-Ed to producing high quality, truly inclusive resources. The online aspect of the programme can also be used at home to ensure a cohesive approach to reading development between home and school. Overall, it is an amazing resource and would highly recommend it for teachers in all levels and settings!



My Spelling Workbook is a fantastic scheme that challenges students at an age appropriate level and always include high frequency words on the list. The teachers resource book has dictation for every unit and alternative weeks spelling and dictation has really improved children’s spelling.
