Reduce Homework Hassle and Get Kids and Parents Talking

Here’s a letter you could be sending to your class or school in September…
r
Primary Sticky Questions
r
You can buy a class set of 40 questions, with at least 32 stickers of each question, enough to last one class the whole year, for just £30+VAT. Typically they are printed 12 to a page, sometimes 8 to a page when illustration is needed.
r
There is a different set for each year group, from Reception (4-5 yrs) up to Year 6 (10-11 yrs).
r
You can buy a School Set for £199+VAT – all seven class sets, enough for all the children in a one-form entry primary school for a whole year! It’s an excellent way for schools to support teachers to provide a high-quality homework task that parents and children can enjoy, while taking a minimum of teacher time.
r

r

Secondary Schools
r
There is also a set of questions for Year 7 (11-12 yrs) to put in their planners/homework diaries – if you’d like further sets for Years 8 and 9, ask and we’ll create some if there is demand. The graphics for these will omit the parent and child illustration, and the questions will be age appropriate.

Earlybird Bonus Before 23/8/19 – Spot & Stripe Videos or Secondary Session Plans

r
All Sticky Questions will be despatched on August 23rd, in time for the new school year. If you order before that date, as a bonus you will get free access to 14 Spot and Stripe videos chosen for your year group – or all 100 videos if you order the School Set!

 r

For the Year 7 stickers, if you order before August 23rd, the bonus is a selection of 14 Philosophy Circles session plans suitable for secondary students.
r
Huge Thank You!
r
I’m very grateful to Julie Mahon of Latton Green Primary for the original inspiration for Sticky Questions. By a happy chance, Julie was at the Heads’ Taster Day on Tuesday so I got to meet her!

“Since the beginning of this academic year I have been sending out thunks on stickers for the children to wear home every Thursday. This has been rolled out across the school and has been a really positive way to include discussion at home. On Fridays the children feed back what their families’ opinions were and if anyone changed their mind after hearing other family members’ ideas.”
r
I really love the idea of parents talking to their children about these questions, instead of spending the same time wrangling them to complete a worksheet. All the packs will include some strategies to open up discussions about the questions back in the classroom, supporting children whose parents are not so supportive, and so on. I’m really very excited about this and I look forward to seeing how people use their sticky questions next year! The hashtag #stickyquestions will be in operation, and our special twitter handle @stickyquestions will be retweeting responses from September.
r
Best wishes,
r
Jason Buckley
