FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Twinkl, a leading educational publisher, has been recognised with the announcement that it has won a prestigious award at the Education Resource Awards (ERA) 2016 in the Primary non ICT category for their scheme of work for the 2014 curriculum - Twinkl PlanIt.
Winners were announced at the annual ERA awards on Friday 18th March at the formal dinner event at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, which is linked to the Education Show held every year at the NEC. The award ceremony is organised by The British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA) in association with Brilliant Marketing Solutions and showcases leading providers of educational resources as well as innovation within education led by teachers, schools and businesses. Each year, the award winners are chosen by an independent panel of expert judges, most of whom are teaching professionals, who select winners based on value for money, the innovative nature of the resource, the impact on teaching and learning and how the resource supported the every day life and work of teachers and pupils.
Twinkl (www.twinkl.co.uk) provides instant access to a complete range of teacher created, engaging and inspiring teaching materials. Twinkl's award winning entry - Twinkl PlanIt - is a scheme of work that has been written to address the aims of the 2014

It includes detailed lesson plans, lesson presentations, creative and differentiated lesson activities and resources, home learning tasks, challenge cards, fact cards, eye catching display packs, key vocabulary grids and formative assessment materials.
