Espresso Primary is an amazingly extensive library of cross-curricular digital resources, giving primary teachers (FS to KS2), access to a huge range of materials to support all aspects of the curriculum, as well as their own professional development. It is very easy to use and updated on a weekly basis, with the latest news from the internet and TV.

This is a fantastic support for teachers as well as very motivating for children.

One of the KS2 authors is Jacqueline Wilson, who talks about how she tackles writing and shows us her family photo album.

As well as all the literacy material, this value for money resource can be used across all subjects. It is also available for parents to access and use at home.
