You already know our website is packed with a huge range of resources. So, this special newsletter is designed to help you find your way around all these wonderful resources.
Use the site regularly, not just when your child has a particlular problem. You are bound to find something to support what they are doing at school.
Give it a try now.
The Worksheet Finder gives you access to every worksheet on the site. You can select from a range of subjects, then filter within the subject for maths, English and science. Then select the type of resource you want e.g. worksheet, revision or SATS-type. Once you have done that, you can select the key stage.
Below, you will see an example of a search for comprehension. If you are not yet a subscriber, you will see that a selection of resources are available for free download.
The Menus at the top of every page allow you to gain an overview of all the topics and subjects covered.
For a more detailed breakdown of each topic, use the
Side menus on the right hand side of each page. Finally, if you want a particular worksheet, topic or resources for a year group, try the Search box on the top left of every page.
Do you want to know how to help your child with specific topics? Our Help Your Child at Home with... series is available to everyone, free of charge. Teaching of each topic is covered progressively, with examples and linked worksheets. Topics include Comprehension, Creative Writing, Learn to Read, Mental Maths, Punctuation, Telling the Time and many more. In addition, we have many resources available on helping children with learning across all aspects of the curriculum.
Are you looking for worksheets on a wider range of topics – handwriting, phonics, history, geography, RE and Citizenship, for example? Look on the top menu bar under subjects and select your chosen subject in the drop down list.
Would you like to improve your child’s concentration and thinking skills? These are vital skills for all ages and we have lots of ideas to help - there are logic problems, ideas to develop spatial awareness and lateral thinking, and plenty of challenging problems for all ages. They are great fun to do as a family, so enjoy them together.
Are you concerned about upcoming tests and exams? We have pages on SATS, 11+and Common Entrance. There is guidance on how to tackle exams and help your child at home. Additionally, there are practice papers which include actual test papers, sample papers and papers written especially for Parents in Touch.
Do you want to approach your child’s school and teachers with confidence? Having a good understanding of the curriculum, of what to expect to happen in each school year, and knowing that you are doing the best you possibly can for your child, can all help when you need to talk to the school about your child. Parents in Touch can help you make informed decisions and subscribers are always welcome to ask for help.
Are you a home educator looking for resources to use? All our resources will help you. We cover all the curriculum and if you look at our Home Education page you will get an overview of what we have to offer. We have around 6000 resources, so a subscription to Parents in Touch is fantastic value for home educators.
We have a range of eBooks covering some of our most frequently requested topics - they are available for immediate download for subscribers and non-subscribers for just £1.99 each. Topics include comprehension, grammar, addition, subtraction, history and science. Download them from here.
Teachers have their own dedicated section on the site, where we have brought together resources to help you in all aspects of teaching. Our teacher subscription, which is only £10 for 250 view/downloads, allows you to copy and use the resources in school or in other professional situations e.g. as a childminder or tutor.
