Dear [NAME] We have compiled this newsletter to enhance your child's enjoyment and understanding of geography, history and RE, and to support learning, whether at home or in school. It highlights the significance of these subjects to all key stage areas and of increasing pupils' knowledge of the world around them. You can learn more about the curriculum at each key stage by following the subject links. The papers show the diversity of the subjects as covered on Parents in Touch. Learning about other places, people in history and different religions ensures that your children, as they get older, are prepared to make decisions from an informed and caring viewpoint.
If you have not already, you may wonder why you should join Parents in Touch, when there are so many education websites. Our unique feature is our Worksheet Finder, which enables you to search by subject, by key stage and by resource type, so you can find exactly what you want from our range of over 7500 resources - and all this for just £5 a year when you take out our special offer.*
KS1 geographyMake sure children know about the UK - there are worksheets on Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland at the same link.Help your child to understand about seasons and how they differ around the world. A Year in Our Street is a good introduction to the area in which children live and will encourage children to be observant. How do the children Travel to School? Islands are studied so answer their questions in What is an Island?
KS2 history Quizzes are always popular and the Stuarts quiz is just one example of many on the site. The Wooden Horse of Troy is familiar to many, so they can find out more about the history of the city. The Great Fire of London is important in the history of our capital city and children study the Stuart period. World War II is another period studied - children will be amazed at the Rationing in World War II!
KS1 RE Help young children to understand what it means if they, or their friends, belong to a religion. They will enjoy finding our about Jesus' friends with our colourful 12 Apostles Quiz. We live in a multi-cultural society and it's important that we understand the beliefs of others - Rosh Hashanah and The Torah are two of the many resources we have to help with this.
