Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

For more information, and to see the full list of pre-order items for your subject, see the Future Publication Dates

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (2194)
"An excellent resource... The activity engages interest. It encourages listening skills, and then through processing the information heard students are able to complete the activity. It can encourage independent learning, promotes a range of quite complex vocabulary and can be easily differentiated." — R Mackenzie, independent reviewer
"I am actually using items from Using your Ears 1, periodically, to help a group of Yr 5 students follow instructions. They enjoy the excercise and reckon it helps them focus on information given - obviously they benefit from the interactive colouring in etc." — H Slack, independent reviewer
"I think it is clear on what the learning outcomes are, to encourage pupils to listen and follow instructions, I think that this resource could be used as a starter of each lesson." — S Hanafi, independent reviewer
