It is no coincidence that Busy Things is LGfL's most heavily-used resource, with over 1 million page turns by London teachers every month. So much more than the sum of its parts (although with so many sections, it would be quite a sum!), it is a wonderfully quirky online educational resource, featuring hundreds of award-winning curriculum-linked games, activities and downloadable resources.
This is a learning resource that quickly engages young minds and retains their interest through quality animation, vibrant colour, wacky sounds and a good injection of Busy Things humour! A clear favourite among EYFS and KS1 teachers, where the importance of play is never underrated, there are already many activities for ages 7+ (Key Stage 2) with lots more being added as part of the update, including resources with a more teacher-led focus.
In case there is any doubt regarding the rigorous pedagogy that underpins the world of Busy Things, it is important to stress that each and every activity is explicitly designed to support individual descriptors from the revised 2014 Primary and EYFS curricula across the Foundation Stage and Key Stages 1 & 2 (with curriculum mapping throughout).
