Hodder Education Group eduu.school online resources

As learning pivoted online at the start of the pandemic, we worked with Hodder Education Group to produce a set of online resources for schools. eduu.school provides fully mapped curriculum resources integrated with mental health and wellbeing support for key stages 1–4, providing learners with access to engaging, innovative and quality lessons.

Oriel Square joined the project to carry out all editorial stages, working with a team of experienced editors to prepare the resources, which covered a variety of school subject areas, for publication online. We worked strategically to make sure that teachers had an ongoing supply of new materials to suit their teaching schedules, meaning some resources were prioritised and published within a short timeframe

The result was a sequenced series of fun and visually appealing front-of-class digital presentations for use online, as well as a range of accompanying online materials such as lesson plans and worksheets.

Pearson The Life of Dr Harold Moody eBook

We worked with Pearson P.R.I.M.E, the voice of Black, Asian and Multiple Ethnic colleagues at Pearson, to reproduce a booklet about the life of Dr Harold Moody as a free online resource for schools, suitable for key stages 2 and 3. The booklet is part of P.R.I.M.E’s initiative to champion the hidden stories of historical Black individuals.

We worked with a multi-stakeholder team to complete all editorial stages of this project, including the author Stephen Bourne, illustrators, Pearson P.R.I.M.E representatives and a Pearson publisher and designer. The final PDF booklet gives an illustrated biography of Dr Harold Moody and finishes with a set of age-appropriate and curriculum-linked discussion questions for both KS2 and KS3 readers.

Collins international kindergarten materials

We worked with Collins to create a new kindergarten course for the international market, covering the core subjects for Kindergarten 1 and 2. Each stage and subject includes an Anthology, Activity Books and a Teacher’s Guide, as well as accompanying digital and audio tools.

We joined the project at the market research phase, in which we gathered feedback from international schools in several countries to gain understanding of how the course could be effective in the classroom. With this insight, we worked with specialist authors to develop the course content and then took the materials through all editorial stages

We also commissioned songs and developed digital tools to be used alongside the print components. Illustrators for the project were sourced from the course’s target market countries, ensuring that course materials were relatable and engaging.

Collins Happy Handwriting resources

We worked with Collins to produce a handwriting course which guides progression from Reception to Year 6, teaching children to write with speed and fluency in the most efficient way possible. The course includes teacher guides, student practice books and front-of-class presentations for all year groups. 

As well as carrying out all editorial stages of the project and briefing the artwork, we created a unique set of fonts, specifically designed to develop handwriting skills. Our in-house Design Lead managed this process, working with a specialist typographer and Collins’ handwriting expert to create fonts which facilitated the aims of the course. We designed the fonts to emulate the most natural and efficient form of handwriting and accommodated for dyslexic learners by differing the shapes of commonly confused letters.

“Oriel Square’s expertise in font and design, regular communication, and a friendly atmosphere helped the process of completing the font for our project run very smoothly. I trusted that the Design Manager was in control of the schedule and technical requirements throughout.”
Commissioning Editor, Collins
