Why not make it easier with Primary Quiz?

In my teaching career, planning lessons was an arduous, time-consuming task. The process was unrelenting. It involved crafting the content to be taught and organising it into PowerPoint presentations, or individual worksheets. 

  Retrieval practice helps engage learners and consolidate learning

Having access to a vast online activity bank supports fluency, retrieval, and mastery in core subjects, such as English, maths, and science, providing a robust, comprehensive learning strategy at the click of a button.

Before this available technology, workload for teachers was incredibly high! Materials needed to be printed, photocopied, and distributed to the pupils – an exhausting and manual process that, at times, seemed never-ending. The hours I invested in this task were countless! 

Fast forward to today, and the educational landscape has transformed immensely! Innovations such as Primary Quiz provide game-changing solutions for educators.
