I have just received these fantastic teaching resources based on the entire series of JJ books. They have been developed by Rowena Simmons and her team the Academies Enterprise Trust, to whom I owe a great debt of thanks. Whilst they have been constructed with Secondary Schools and the National Curriculum in mind, there are more than enough ideas here for some great lessons in Primary Schools too. As the books seem to have the ability to engage pupils that might be hard to reach, I would be so happy if schools are able to utilise the JJ series as part of their teaching and class discussions. So here they are… Please recommend to other schools and any networks of which you are a part and let me know what you think.
