Why Not Use Our Product in a Tin Competition as an Activity for 2019?
Our Product in a Tin competition can be used as a module of work, as an NEA mock context, or as a homework, club or extension activity. It’s open to years 5 - 11 and there are lots of resources to get you started. With prizes for the winning school worth over £1200 it’s definitely worth getting your students involved. This year for the first time photo entries are also accepted (although they can’t win a prize apart from being featured on the website). Competition ends 1/8/19.
