Parents in Touch

Dear [NAME]
We know that July is a busy month with Sports Days, Parents' Evenings and preparation for next term. We have included worksheets below which will ease your time pressures and be useful. Let us hope the sun shines and we can all have a good summer holiday!

Some children have a vivid imagination but others need encouragement and help with stimulating vocabulary. You will find the 'Bones...' lesson plan useful and time saving. Young children thoroughly enjoy 'Going on a bear hunt...'
The papers below are both fun and helpful for revision and will help to ensure that the children have a good grasp of the concepts involved. This is the time of year for maths games so challenge your pupils with these. 
Pirates are a fascinating subject for pupils so this comprehension will be popular. It is important for pupils, as they mature, that they understand how a community works, so the worksheet 'How a community works KS3'  provides some useful details. 
Many children live in cities so it is not always easy to see 'live animals', so this worksheet may encourage them to learn about Farm animals. We hope the 'Have fun' worksheet and 'One More' will be useful in class.
The 'Phonics...' and 'The sss blend sound' worksheets are desgned to reinforce learning. For older pupils use 'Spelling and group words KS2' as correct spelling adds marks in tests.
It is important that pupils enjoy science and the 'Action and reaction ' worksheet is fun as well as being fascinating. Many pupils find the body intriguing, so ensure that your pupils understand how the body works.
Starting a new school year 
Many children are hesitant when starting a new year group. Here are some ideas which may give them more confidence and help them to settle in more easily. The first few weeks are especially important for the child. 
Take a look at our super Giveaways for this month. We have a LOGO game, perfect for holidays. There are two super Colorscape colouring books and two Train Your Brain books to keep children occupied. Plenty of stories too - Lulu Loves Flowers and a set of 4 Little Tiger picture books (and a bag) for younger ones, plus Trebizon and The It Girl Team Awkward for older readers. I am Not a Dinosaur is a fascinating read.

Books  For lots more ideas on reading and helping your child, take a look at our Best new books pages.
