Review quote

"Each activity has a symbol indicating which learning styles it suits. This is very useful if you are working with a small group that you know well and need an extra activity in a hurry, or if you get called upon to cover for someone and all their planning is at home. Although the activities are aimed at 7-14 year olds, they could be adapted for gifted and talented pupils in Key Stage 1" Learning Support, February March 2006 Issue
