are a company trusted by schools and therefore you can trust that your children will get a great learning experience from their toys. When looking for home learning toys, Learning Resources is often the place to go.
Children love to share what they have learned at school and to build on that learning so games and toys that scaffold this are always a hit. Plenty of schools use Learning Resources sets in the classroom so your child may recognise these and develop their use of them at home.
For your very young ones, these counting sheep are just brilliant, offering them so many different ways of playing! Each of the brightly coloured sheep has a number on their wool and corresponding number of dots under the wool. Just taking off the wool and putting it back on develops fine motor skills. Add colour matching, number recognition, cardinal numbers on top of that and you have loads of fun in one toy. And the imaginative play as those sheep cavort around your living room!
Children of all ages are learning to code and loving it! For years children were only exposed to the end-user experience of technology whereas now we aim to teach them the language of code form an early age. The world is changing constantly, and technology turns around at a rapid rate so to have even a basic understanding of coding will stand them in great stead for the future. Learning Resources have created this coding mouse which can be programmed to dash around its little maze. It is an excellent STEAM toys which appeals to all manner of children. The set supports analytical thinking, problem solving and with detailed instructions builds step-by-step programming skills.
Learning Resources are behind the hugely successful GeoSafari range which encourages youngsters to get closer to science and nature, inspiring curious minds and promoting exploration through active play. The hands-on nature of their products really gets children engaged and willing to take ownership of their learning. This GeoSafari Jr. microscope is designed especially for little hands and is perfect as a child's first microscope – it is fully functional and allows your young scientist to explore the world at really close quarters!
Fractions is a maths topic which is guaranteed to bring a hearty groan from the class! For some, they can’t see how fractions work – the numbers are just another language that doesn’t make sense. For these learners, this Fraction Pie puzzle set is just wonderful, making the process more kinaesthetic and visual. It is a lot easier for young mathematicians to get to grips with equivalencies, common denominators and multiples when they can physically slot them together! Making a game and challenge out of fractions makes the whole topic more palatable and builds confidence as they complete more cards.
