For teachers KS1

Teachers! Are you looking for fresh ideas to use in the classroom? At Parents in Touch we have a huge range of colourful and stimulating resources for you to use in the classroom.

Parents in Touch was initially set up to help parents, but the interest shown by schools has led us to open up the site to teachers, many of whom are now using our resources in the classroom and as homework activities. We have shown here just a small fraction of our thousands of resources. Please look around the site to see what else we have to offer.


Here is a sample of some of the KS1 maths worksheets on the site. If you want to view them all, see the maths worksheets page.Some of these may be useful for individual children as extension activities or as a further teaching aid. As most of the worksheets are written for parents, we have only included a selection here but realise that others may be useful to you as a teacher to consolidate work you are covering.

Communication is so easy and varied in the modern day that it can sometimes be essential that children are distracted from playstations, computer games and other electronic toys to be encouraged to concentrate and enjoy reading. It is therefore useful if teachers have stimulating activities to encourage children into increasing their vocabulary, using their imagination and enjoying books. We have tried to support teachers in achieving this aim in the reading worksheets, booklists and topics on the site.
