“I have found the My Zippy Books extremely useful. They really help to keep the children on track and remember what they have learnt. It is great to have everything in one place and the children will be able to take them away from Year 2 with them” Teacher, Surrey

30 Parents' Leaflets £25

A clear and concise overview of the programme for parents to let them know what their child will be learning and how they can support Zippy’s Friends at home                 

80 Zippy Tips Cards £18

Credit-card sized cards which show the 4 steps to a good solution and the 2 golden rules that a good solution must follow- “It makes me feel better” and “It doesn’t hurt me or anyone else”.  Enough cards for 2 per child (so one can be kept at school and one sent home) as well as extras for other school staff (such as lunchtime supervisors) so that the ethos of Zippy’s Friends can be spread throughout the school.
