Combine your KS1 and KS2 English and maths revision with elements of design and technology, by getting children to make their own ‘never ending cards.’
A never ending card is a tactile study tool that can be folded and turned inside out to reveal three different faces. Each never ending card is robust and takes up little desk space, meaning it can be easily referred to during lessons. Children can even add their own helpful information to a card’s three faces, should they wish.
This resource pack includes the templates you’ll need to make your own never ending cards, as well as a link to a video (embedded below) that can be shown in class, which provides step-by-step instructions on how to make them. You’ll also find maths and English resources for KS1 and KS2 that can be added to the cards, turning them into fun and effective revision tools suitable for use both in the classroom and at home.
