We think it’s important to share information about how teachers are using Hands On resources and the impact they are having in your classrooms.

These comments reflect the comments we’ve had about Hands On Magnets.

  • The magnets are a great idea - they are interactive and pupils find it fun to use them. Again, they teach essential literacy skills, but in a really engaging way. They are so much better and so much more appropriate than anything else I have seen.

  • At last a set of discreet magnets that don’t shout ‘I’ve got SEN’. They are neat, appropriate and have infinite uses.

You'll find that Hands On Magnets are smaller than magnetic words and letters commonly used with Primary school children. This is specifically so that when they are used on a magnetic board words and sentences appear as text appears in a book or on a screen.

The font is size 14 and each magnet measures 10mm high and range from 9mm to 37mm wide.

Kinaesthetic learning is often essential to help struggling learners crack the code. Until now, kinaesthetic resources have principally been designed for primary school pupils. So we thought long and hard and decided that magnets could be the perfect solution for the job. Hands On Magnets are sets of magnetised letters or words for specific literacy tasks and come in our trademark, silver tin.
