The publisher, author, graphic designer/artist and printer deserve tremendous praise for this high quality product. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.’ Martin Cunningham, KS3/4 Science teacher.

Outstanding product and service

‘I have been using Oaka Books products for a few years and continue to be impressed by the quality of their content and products. I am trying to keep up with the new material they are producing in hard copy and value the same content on my e-site. Having to use Zoom for tutoring, being able to share the content on the screen has been invaluable! Bambi has always added a very personal touch to my dealings with Oaka Books. She is warm, friendly and very efficient. It is always a pleasure dealing with Bambi and her company.’ Mandy Snook, tutor.

Multisensory Teaching Toolkit – a winner!

‘Lots of ideas and beautifully illustrated. Wide range of topics but particularly strong for Science facts. Would have given a 5 star rating if it had included more Literacy ideas but still really useful.’ Katharine Verill, The Oratory School.

Great resource

‘Excellent resource, very clear, easy for students to see and read, clear and colourful pictures and diagrams.’ Miss R Butterworth, KS3 science teacher.
‘Just spent an very enjoyable 20 minutes playing an Oaka game with my grandaughter – she didn’t even realise she was revising for her test on Cells!!!’ Jane Gaudie, former Head of The Chiltern Dyslexia School.

Very Useful

‘Very useful. To be effective  (Science Pairs Games) one needs to do the pairings numerous times.’ Alistair G, WestHill Park School.

Amazing for my dyslexic pupils!

‘These books are amazing! I am using them as a springboard for a student who is home schooled. As a dyslexic, who teaches dyslexics, these books have been well thought out and designed. Would highly recommend. Thanks Oaka.’ Cassandra Rollet-May, Dyslexic, teacher, SEND consultant and NLP practitioner.

Excellent Resources!

‘I have borrowed the same cards from a colleague to help with pupils’ CE revision so thought I’d get some of my own. They are superb; clear graphics, appropriate vocab, useful topic cover. I use them as a plenary at the end of a lesson or as flash cards to ‘jog’ memories at the start.’ Elizabeth K.

Big Hit in the classroom!

‘Thanks for the Geography resources that we purchased off you a few weeks ago. The On the Map game is a big hit in the classroom, and our SEN guys are enjoying the books!’ Alistair Gray, West Hill Park School.


Fun and accessible resources 

‘The resources are excellent. I’m lead for Teaching and Learning in an Outstanding Specialist SLCN/ASD school and also Dyslexia Specialist Teacher. Geared towards VAK/Multi-sensory learning, fun and accessible.’ Sean Lenahan, Pontville School.

Gave our department the edge

“The resources were clear, colourful and easy to understand. It gave [our] department an edge when it came to delivering lessons to those sets who would normally find accessing information difficult.”  Colm Atkinson, Head of History at Forge Valley Community School.

Transformational resources – well done!

“I tried this with a boy who was really struggling and was not engaged at all in his learning. He loved the whole thing and it totally changed our session together. Thank you!”  SENCo, Secondary School,  Hampshire.

Perfect history resources for helping pupils access information

“I have international pupils in my lessons and have been trying to find resource material that allows them to access history. The Oaka products have been absolutely perfect in allowing them access the topics.” Andrew Finch, Perrott Hill School.


Superb packs! 

“Super pack! Allows a variety of activities that are interactive. Very visual and students really enjoyed using the materials.”  Maggie Smith, Head of History at Forest Hall School.

Makes learning accessible to all

“Fantastic, so accessible to students and visually appealing.”  Jacqueline Hadley, Head of History at Moon Hall College.

“Just what my dyslexic students need to be able to fully engage with the topic. They have been such a success!”  Lynne Bostock, The Learning Loft.

“I just love this! The colours, the images, the layout, everything makes it easy for our pupils to access the information. This is just what we need to get children interested.”  Classroom Assistant, Primary School, Suffolk.

“This is the best teaching resource I’ve seen in a long, long time. The use of colour and images make our children actually want to open the books and read them.”  SENCo, Secondary School.

“The mind mapping, key points, and games are all fantastic strategies to support all learners. A wonderful resource for pupils, teachers and parents too!”  Sarah Eastaugh, Head of Learning Support, Abingdon Prep School.

“The children are enthusiastic to use them. When boys come in from the rugby pitch at lunchtime asking if they can play ‘On the Map’, a global location revision game for Key Stage 3 & Common Entrance, you know you have found a top-class product!

‘Teachers are provided with instant display materials for the classroom. The quality of the illustrations is first-class and visually attractive to all learners. Those who find learning a challenge find that topics like the Peasants’ Revolt come to life by using the Active Revision Maps and cut-out characters. These products are ideal for visual and kinaesthetic learners and condense topics into memorable and easy-to-understand stories.” Director of SEN (Leap), Edgeborough School.

“I would like to write to you to say how pleased we are with our recent purchases and say how we would highly recommend Oaka Books for the following reasons: Information is presented in a number of multisensory ways; the product has assisted our pupils with revision for the Common Entrance examinations, in particular the boys In the Learning Support Department, who need Interactive revision to consolidate their learning; the resources support the work of the teachers and pupils in a fun, bright, colourful and memorable way.”  Bridie Heath-Walker, Head of Learning Support, Lochinver House School.

“(Pupils) self-esteem has been boosted by the ‘map’ or game that ‘tests’ their knowledge, when they are surprised by the fact that they can actually remember the facts. They don’t realise they are learning!! The pupils have raved so much about the revision packs that colleagues teaching a variety of subject teachers have also purchased them to help support their lessons. Unlike other revision packs, the Oaka ones have that ‘hands-on’ approach that creates a better understanding of the topic.

They have been extremely well thought out. The quality of the resources in the revision pack is superb and well-priced.”  Mrs. Susanna Ogden, Head of Skills Development, Aysgarth School Trust Limited.    

“I have been playing (with my own 10 year old child) the Henry VIII and His Wives pack. He has had a great time and he HATES learning. I cannot wait to get more packs. Thank you for this wonderful tool!”  Learning Support Assistant, Surrey.
