Our Reviews

“I just wanted to say a big thank you! Your lovely resources make my life as a teacher that little bit more bearable. I spend most of my evenings and weekends planning and resourcing lessons, but since discovering the magic of PlanBee I have been able to 'claim back' some of this time. My class of 30 hard-to-please children certainly enjoyed learning about the Greeks last term - all thanks to you! ”
