Shine!


A new motivational resource to help you educate the whole child.


Are your students more than the sum of their test scores?

Are you looking to make your classroom somewhere special?

Are you the sort of person who views creativity as an essential skill, not just an added extra?


Well this could be just what you are looking for. Shine! is an illustrated resource aimed at any teacher or parent who is brave enough to care more about the people their children become than their scores on standardised tests. It will help you to:

    - redress your pupils' test/life balance!
    - discuss, identify and celebrate your students' sparks
    - promote individuality
    - encourage creativity
    - value a broad range of skills

It's a resource for anyone who wants to see young people thrive - for anyone who thinks education is about making a life, not just making a living. We've come to realise that being a truly sparky teacher is more about looking for and nurturing the spark in young people than in ourselves. Recognising and encouraging the things that drive your pupils is essential to communicating with them. You can read more about our inspiration for 'Shine!' in our blog post, 'The Lost Art of Nurturing Sparks'.

'Shine!' is a 26-page PDF eBook. The resource preceded our Messages That Matter which is why there is some overlap between the two. 'Shine!' includes the following:

    - nine unique illustrated posters
    - four reward cards
    - activity sheet
    - teachers' notes
