Your trial of a portable outdoor PA system, perfect for School Sports Days & Summer Fayres

Have you got an outdoor event coming up this summer? Will everyone hear everything that is being said?

With an easy to use SoundRanger portable PA system – everyone across the school field, children, parents, helpers and staff will hear everything easily and clearly.

Your special event will take on a really professional atmosphere as everyone will hear all of your results, information and announcements.

Built-in rechargeable batteries give you all the power you need, without mains leads trailing across the playground or field.

When you are not speaking, you can play music from your phone, that’s easy too!

Karen from Aldershot said … “Sports Day with a megaphone days are GONE! It was used today for the PTA Summer Fayre …………… oh my wow, the difference is amazing!!’

But don’t take Karen’s word for it – try the system for yourself with no charge.

Simply tell us about your event and we will put together the best SoundRanger system for you and arrange for you to try it on a 30 day Free Trial.

Set up takes just 15 minutes and then you can use it straight away.  After your event, you can of course use the SoundRanger system in your school hall as well!

There is more information about the SoundRanger systems on our website here:

To hear what Karen heard and arrange a free 30 day trial simply call or email and leave the rest to us!

The SoundRanger Compact 4 is so reliable and robust, it has been used by the British Army to play battlefield sound effects to their recruits on assault courses!

Please reply quickly as these systems are understandably very popular during the summer!

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best wishes

What’s the simple way to help maths lessons be more productive, both for teachers and students…….?

Every now and again I get to chat with  teachers and one of the topics that often crops up is why many students don’t  bring a pen, pencil, ruler etc to their lessons.  They tell me that this leads to wasted time and a measure of disruption,  even before teaching has begun.

In an attempt to solve this problem there’s  now a  product called the “Value Maths set ” which, as the name suggests, contains all the basics that students need for their  maths lessons.

Consisting of  two quality black ink ballpens, a full length HB pencil, eraser, 15 cm ruler, 180 degree protractor, metal compass and half pencil,  and a metal sharpener, all packed in an  A5 size, clear PVC “exam friendly” wallet with a zip slider.

From just £ 1.25 each (ex vat) the “Value Maths set”  is a convenient and cost effective solution to the problem of students who haven’t brought the correct kit to their maths lessons.  Ideal to give (or sell !) to students at the start of a lesson or at the start of a school day………  also very useful for exams.

Full details of the “Value Maths set”   can be found on the website:

Something to consider ahead of the new times tables test

What is perhaps the most important factor to consider when preparing lessons ahead of the new primary times tables test?

A child’s ability to transmit information from the short-term memory to the long-term memory depends largely on the format in which the information is received, making this perhaps the most important factor to consider when preparing lessons ahead of the new times tables test.

However, there is often a misconception that a single lesson cannot respond to the learning needs of all pupils simultaneously, which is why we have produced a number of free activity materials that you can use with your class in order to quash this misconception, including:

Ups and downs – an activity for learning 2x table

Mind the gap – an activity for learning 5x table

Either way – an activity for learning how to find factors

Count up and count down – an activity for learning 10x table

You can find more stimulating and imaginative activities like this in the volume: Fun Games and Activities for Teaching Times Tables, which has been especially designed to help you to prepare your pupils for the new times tables test.

Fun Games and Activities for Teaching Times Tables will ensure that your pupils are fluent in the times tables, not least so that they can rapidly and accurately recall and apply them at any given time.

You can order Fun Games and Activities for Teaching Times Tables on our website either in PDF for £12.99 or as a hardcopy book for £17.99. There is also the option to buy both the hardcopy and PDF together at a discounted price of £21.89.
