There are some topics which will be useful to you to help your child research and investigate from books and by using a computer. Maps, illustrations, pictures and photographs always help to make a topic more interesting and alive.
As always, we have some super Giveaways so make sure you enter for these.

KS2 EnglishSome children can read and assimilate facts from a passage easily but for others it takes more time, so practice is always good. Encourage your child to increase their writing vocuabulary to try and make their stories more interesting.
