Parents in Touch

Dear [NAME]

Now is a good opportunity to review the work done over the past school year so we have selected some resources that will help build on the good work done. These are good to use over the summer holidays to keep your child's learning going. We have included in this newsletter some activities that they can enjoy with an adult such as diary work, holiday games and family topics. We wish everyone awaiting exam results every success and hope that you all have a super holiday and a good time as a family.

Don't let your child miss out! Subscribe now and join the thousands of people who help their children by using Parents in Touch.

KS1 English  Perhaps on less sunny days you could make bread and then do the comprehension on it afterwards. If your child does 'Patch's diary' this would be a great way of introducing themselves to their new teacher in September!
KS2 English  Reading books helps increase a child's vocabulary and stimulates the imagination. The holidays are always a great time to enjoy reading together and ensure that your child has a love of books.


KS3 English Teenagers enjoy reading magazines and finding out about the latest fashions, trends, music and news and this is a good way to occupy them on holiday. 
KS1 maths Here are some fun maths ideas for all the family to enjoy while travelling or at home. Maths activities such as cooking, board games and quizzes encourage children to think and to acquire new knowledge.
KS2 maths  Many children love cooking and this is a great way to revise or introduce weighing, times, procedures and have fun! Timetables encourage children to understand the concept of time and plan journeys correctly.
KS3/GCSE maths Have fun after all your hard work and now you can enjoy your summer.
Foundation Stage  Some of these papers will be useful to use on rainy days with your children who are starting school or who are beginning to read and enjoy maths. Have fun with Mummy.
Spelling and Phonics Being able to spell well is a great asset so here are some ideas to use with your children to help them master this art.
Science All children love experimenting with water and sand, exploring rock pools and discovering new ways of recording work. When you do this with your child you too can enjoy their learning.
Lesson Plans I hope that all the teachers enjoy a great and well deserved holiday. We hope that we may have helped you when planning for next term with some of the ideas on the site.
Holiday Travelling is great fun but children do need to be occupied. We have included some ideas here which may make your journey more peaceful and the time pass more quickly!
Topics We will get the inevitable wet or dull day so we have included some fun topics here which both parents and children will enjoy.
Take a look at our super Giveaways for this month.Cloudbabies and Everything's Rosie are two colourful DVDs for young children.
