We are sure you are looking forward to the summer holidays, but will you ignore this problem? Summer learning loss is a real thing. It's the loss of academic skills and knowledge over the course of the summer holidays [[Wikipedia]]. The antidote is to use the many activities to be enjoyed by the whole family highlighted below in this newsletter.

Many of you will have children starting school in September. We have compiled a booklet especially for you: "Transition to Reception". This gives what you and your child need to know as they take this major step forward.
We are constantly adding resources to the site and we can only include a small selection below. Remember to use the Worksheet Finder to see our full range of resources.
Ideas for summer Now's the time to get out and about. Our section on the World Around Us has got lots of pages to help identify the things we see around us - Trees, Birds and Flowers. Try the Sealife activities if you go to the beach, and learn about Tides.
Topics We have topics to interest everyone, and they are an excellent way to introduce a little practical learning into the summer holiday. The Insect Topic is perfect to encourage children to take an interest in the natural world, as is the Minibeasts Topic.An Alien Topic features a popular subject for children, especially boys. Many of us live near canals and rivers, so why not try the Topic on Canals?
Finally, here are some more ideas to enjoy during the summer - check out our Summer Activities page, which is full of ideas to help you make the most of the summer holidays. Summer Craft Ideas are ideal in case of those rainy days. See how many flowers your child can identify with the help of the My flower booklet and get outdoors to try the suggestions in Nature Projects
