New Entrants to Year 8. Many of our Year 7 and 8 resources are also suitable for Year 9 and 10 classes.

No. The copyright on our resources means they are for single use only. We are a small, family-owned business, and wed really appreciate it if you could refer other teachers to our website. We have team memberships available that allow multiple teachers from a school to become members at a discounted rate.

Yes. We will create a custom membership plan for you based on the size of your school and the number of teachers that will be using the resources. Simply send us an email with your details and we can get the ball rolling.

No. Whether you’re a parent or caregiver homeschooling your children, or a tutor looking for extra activities, our resources are made for everyone.

You’ll receive an exclusive discount code upon purchasing the membership. Simply enter this code when purchasing other resources at our www.topteachingtasks.com site for 10% off the advertised price.

We currently have two payment options: using Paypal or Stripe. Both have the option of securely entering your credit or debit card details. You also have the option of paying manually for a school/team membership via an invoice.

Once you are logged in as a member, head to the Resource section and find a resource you would like to download. Click the download button and the resource will download directly onto your device.

A ZIP file is a compressed folder containing multiple files. It allows you to transfer many files at once, and takes up less storage space than the files would if they were not compressed. It’s also an easy way for us to distribute many files together, like discounted bundles.

Opening a ZIP file using Microsoft Windows:

Right-click on the unopened ZIP folder.
Choose “Extract All” from the menu that opens.
Choose a destination. This is the place where you want to keep the unzipped files. You can choose “My Documents,” for example.
Click “Extract.”

You can also locate the file and extract it after downloading from Google Chrome by following these steps:

After downloading the file, locate it using the download bar at the bottom of the Google Chrome browser, and click to open the Extraction Tool.
Click on the button at the top of the page that says “Extract All.”
After extraction is complete, a new folder window will open containing the files inside the ZIP. If you see a folder named _MACOSX, you can delete or ignore it. Those files are created when the ZIP is made on a Mac, and are not used by Windows.

For further information, see the Microsoft help guide here.

    If your computer runs Mac OSX:

    Double-click the unopened ZIP — the file should extract automatically. If that doesn’t work, hold down the control key and click the ZIP file icon. Choose “Open With” and then select “Archive Utility.” The utility will extract the ZIP files, and you can find them in the same folder where you downloaded them.

    I’ve tried these instructions but I’m still having trouble opening a ZIP file

    For a simple solution that works on Windows and Mac OSX, we recommend extracting ZIP files online using one of these free websites:

    – wobzip.org
      – unzip-online.com

        For any other Zip file related issues, or for further assistance, please contact us.

        Make sure you’re using the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader – it’s free to download here 
        1. Open the PDF file with Adobe Acrobat Reader.
        2. Click ‘File’ then scroll down to ‘Print’.
        3. In the ‘Page Sizing & Handling’ section, select “Shrink Oversized Pages” if needed.
        4. Print the document – make sure to check the settings if you want colour print outs.

        No. All of our resources are PDF digital downloads for you to print out.
