First Steps Poster Packs

These packs have been designed for use with nursery and KS1 children. Each contains brightly coloured A1 posters and other linked resources which together form a comprehensive unit of study on Japan for the foundation stage. Easy-to-follow teachers’ notes are also included, with stimulating lesson ideas and associated worksheets which may be copied for use in the classroom. Details of the packs are given below.

Loan is free if the poster packs are collected and returned by the school, but we also offer a postal loan service. In this case, schools are liable for both outward and return postage costs. The current charge vary in accordance with ParcelForce charges. Loan is usually for a half-term period.
