Review : Twinkl

When I first logged onto Twinkl I was impressed with the colourful easy to use layout.  Not familiar with Twinkl, it took me a matter of seconds to work out how to navigate the site but more importantly understand Twinkl and what it is all about.

Twinkle Site


Twinkl is an on line educational resource, which focuses on EY, KS1 and KS2.  There are over 60,000 beautiful hand drawn resources that are used in educational settings not only in the UK but around the world.  There are an additional 10,000 resources available with the Premium service which costs £29.99 a year.  This really is a fantastic price for such beautiful educational resources.

There are a great selection on resources including Classroom signs, Classroom Management, Numeracy and Literacy but the one I was particularly interested in was Parents. 

My eldest daughter can currently recognise around 15 letters of the alphabet but a couple she mixes up, b,p,d,q in particular as they all look similar.  I was really impressed with the letter formation poster, which is part of the premium service, as it clearly and colourfully shows how each letter is formed.  This will help my daughter to clearly visualise the formation on each letter to help her recognise more letters.

There is even an entire section, in the parental resource, dedicated to Confusing letters.  I have downloaded the confusing letters desktop cards as I love the way they use images to explain the letters and the letter order.  Each image is beautifully illustrated that it makes educating a little one a real pleasure.



With the current snowy weather, I wondered if Twinkl had any resources available to teach my daughter about the snow.  I was surprised to find that not only did they have a whole section focused on Winter but also other special themes including the Chinese New Year.  

Within the Winter resource section I found some Arctic Animal Posters, which the animals are really cute and my daughter will love.  I also found a role play section.  There are some amazing creations in here but my two personal favourites which I shall be doing with my children are design your own winter clothes and the Arctic role play masks.

I am so impressed with the amount of tools available on Twinkl, each one is beautifully created and it is more than worth signing up to the premium service, to access the additional resources.  I love that there are tools available for parents and not just those in a classroom environment.  Twinkl really is a beautiful and amazing tool that aids any child's development, I wish it had been available when I was little.
