Bonfire Night, Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Thursday 2nd November
This week we've added some more resources to Bonfire Night - or rather the Gunpowder Plot - with a new collection of comprehension and other worksheets. We look ahead to Thanksgiving with some new printables - and yes, we add our first new Christmas content for the year, specially for those of you who like to plan well in advance! I hope you love these Christmas Doodle Pages as much as we do.
We've also got 2 lovely new happy colouring pages for our colouring quotes collection, as well as some interesting and unusual bookmarks to colour. And 64 new arithmagon puzzles! Explore below.

A Little Something ...
"Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life."
Omar Khayyam

"Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared."

"Wherever my story takes me, however dark and difficult the theme, there is always some hope and redemption, not because readers like happy endings, but because I am an optimist at heart. I know the sun will rise in the morning, that there is a light at the end of every tunnel."
Michael Morpurgo
