How can we help?
As well as creating our own resources, much of our time is spent employed in a freelance capacity, writing and designing for publishers and companies. Projects we have been involved in range from writing Primary maths resources for major publishers to designing online images for Discovery Education's Math Techbook.
Digital work has included designing websites and writing content for a problem-solving app. In addition, schools often ask us to design personalised resources, something that we find particularly rewarding.
We are always on the lookout for new projects, so if you are a publisher, school, company or individual in need of some creative input, do get in touch. You can email us at contact[at]sparkyteaching.com, give us a call on 07549 652963 or use our contact form. We'll get back to you as quickly as possible.
