Latest News Article: Planning ideas for September

Schemes of Work imageThe summer holidays are nearly upon us, and teachers will be busy with schemes of work for September. Now is a good time to remind yourself of some LGfL resources and how you might incorporate them into your planning.

Remember that if you have a particular area of the curriculum where you might need new resources, then Curriculum Central allows you to filter resources by individual National Curriculum descriptor! And if you want to browse all resources by subject or Key Stage, then visit Showcase.

It is not possible to cover all resources here, so please do browse for your subject or KS, but here are some tips for easy including in your schemes of work.

NB - the following require a login if not in-school; if you are not an LGfL user, please check out the individual resources on Showcase.
