Learning is fun especially when your child is naturally interested in a particular subject. This newsletter is designed to give you some ideas about what topic based worksheets you think they may enjoy to do with you.
Not all children get excited about maths and English! But they might respond to topics about a favourite book character, pirates, or any aspect of nature. They will enjoy learning about things that interest them personally. To see all our worksheets on topics head over to the Worksheet Finder and select subject:TOPICS.
If they enjoy learning this helps their confidence in school and general progress in all school subjects.
We regularly review many interesting fact books. We highlight below three book ideas - who would have thought there is a book on things you can do with a stick!
Make your way over to Best New Books and you are bound to find a host of other books your child will enjoy.
