An Introduction to Twinkl!





In my time as a student teacher we have been introduced to and experimented with numerous websites offering resources for educators to use in the modern classroom.  The site that stands out a mile and has been a genuine life-saver for me throughout my teaching practices to date has without doubt been twinkl.co.uk. As I undertake my final year school placement Twinkl have kindly gifted me a platinum subscription to sample, use and review the resources in the months ahead. Today, I would like to introduce you to the website, inform you of what it has to offer and there will be a follow-up review once my placement is complete. Stay tuned!
