Welcome to the 123HUB News for

November 2019!

 

With time being a cherished commodity for all teachers during this very busy autumn term, why not let the 123HUB save you some of your valuable time and help you find the right quality resources that you need? We now have over 2400 great online resources to choose from – check out what is on offer on the 123HUB below:

 

Our featured theme for October 2019 is ‘Creative Writing’!

 

Creative Writing. Our super featured theme for November is the enthralling and imaginative topic of Creative Writing.  Most people really enjoy reading, or being read, a good story or article; however, writing one can be another matter altogether.  Nonetheless, there are many reluctant writers out there who merely need the right prompting, inspiration and encouragement in order to get their creative juices flowing and perhaps become the next Roald Dahl, J K Rowling or David Walliams!

We have 54 excellent creative writing themed websites on offer; they include resources for both KS1 and KS2. We have inspiring image prompts and story starters, exciting writing activities and ideas, and much more besides, all of which will hopefully inspire and release the imaginations of our reluctant writers. The resources comprise of a mixture of: example stories, guidance, activities, information, video clips, as well as some detailed planning – each of which will effectively support this great topic.

 

In addition to our featured theme, we also have the following mini themes, which might prove helpful during November:

 

Remembrance  Day. As Remembrance Day also falls in November, we have, in addition, 14 really useful resources that will help cover this topic with KS1 and KS2. The resources provide: information, facts, activities, videos and planning ideas that will hopefully prove invaluable to teachers.

 

 

Bonfire Night and the Gunpowder Plot. As Bonfire Night falls in November,  in addition to our featured monthly theme for that month, we also included sixteen great Bonfire Night and Gunpowder Plot resources, including the history and traditions of  the celebration, fireworks and firework safety and more; all of which, teachers may find really useful.

 

 

The featured theme is updated monthly during the school year.  Watch out for our super ‘Famous Artists’ and ‘Christmas’ resources, coming in December 2019!
