The topic packs also include a range of printable resources which can be used in the learning environment. Find out more about each topic pack below.
A list of the topic packs
The teacher tools allow you to create your very own themed resources, including jigsaws, pairs games and slideshows. These can all be saved into a tray and made available for the children as a topic pack. The teacher tools also includes a certificate maker which allows the teacher to create wonderful individual certificates for the children, a great way to celebrate the children’s achievements.

Saving and Sharing Work
With our online tray system, everything that children create in Mini Mash can be saved and shared with parents.
In a couple of taps or clicks you can create a tray for an individual child, group of children or topic. Hey presto! children now have somewhere to save all their wonderful Mini Mash creations. Teachers can also add comments to the children’s work in a tray to help encourage and develop their learning. You can also fill a tray with your own custom resources and pin it to the home screen, creating your very own topic pack!
Teachers have the option to make a child’s tray accessible to their parents using a special URL. That means wherever their parents are, be it at home or at work or even out of the country, they’ll be able to see, enjoy, and celebrate their child’s achievements. We think that’s something parents will really value!
