We work closely with our teachers, to help them get the best out of our resources.
We often canvas our customers to hear about the impact BrainPOP has in class. Which is why when teachers like David Mordue, a Year 4 Teacher & KS2 Leader, sent us this testimonial we were over the moon!
Thank you to David and all the kids at Lanchester EP Primary School! Happy BrainPOPping!
“BrainPOP is a fantastic resource that we’ve been using in our school for the past couple of years now. We find that the children are hugely enthused by BrainPOP. They love the characters of Tim and Moby and find them entertaining and fun!
The fact that Tim and Moby ‘deliver’ the content of each movie makes it immediately child-friendly and engaging. From a classroom teacher’s point of view, I find the content of the movies and the related activities to be perfectly pitched for my KS2 children with key vocabulary being clearly explained to make the topics easy to understand for the children.
BrainPOP has a huge amount of cross-curricular content. We use it to enhance our teaching of a wide range of subjects – from core subjects like Maths, English and Science to other subject areas such as History, Art and Computing.
I often use BrainPOP to ‘launch’ new topics (such as our ‘Romans’ topic in History at the moment) as the movies provide a really engaging starting point to not only provide key facts and concepts to the children, but to ‘hook’ them into a topic.
The children in my class have gone on to produce some fantastic pieces of work from using BrainPOP – it has had a really positive impact on the teaching and learning in my classroom.
When we started using BrainPOP at Lanchester it was primarily to access the excellent animated ‘Tim and Moby’ movies, however there is so much more to BrainPOP than just the movies themselves.
The related quizzes, concept mapping tools, games and extra reading materials are great. I often use the activities as part of my whole class teaching and the children enjoy having activities assigned to them either in class (on our school laptops or iPads) or for homework – if it’s a BrainPOP activity they don’t feel like it’s work at all!
The BrainPOP team are always adding new features too – we’ve just started exploring the new ‘make-a-movie’ feature which is very popular so far with the children!
I find BrainPOP to be very easy to use – great for busy teachers! The website itself is really easy to navigate and the BrainPOP Educators section provides really clear help with video tutorials and webinars to watch.
That’s really helpful if you quickly need to know how to set up your class or how to show the children how to save their BrainPOP work for example. I would have no hesitation in recommending BrainPOP to other teachers – it has been a great addition to the resources we use in school and never fails to engage the children.”
