Monster Practice A Fun Approach To Learning | REVIEW

I have been so impressed at the way P2 has dealt with going to big school. We are at the end of the staggered settling in period where we picked her up at 12pm for a week and then 1pm for the following week. As of next week she will be in school full time. I thought the excitement may …

Learning Times Tables With Maths Rockx

One of the subjects I always struggled with at school was Maths. I have no idea what it is about the entire subject but it just never stayed in my brain. I even attended out of school help sessions to try and improve my mathematical ability but even that didn’t help. When P1 started school I was quite concerned that …

Back To School With Smiggle Stationery

I normally hate the school holidays and wish for them to go quicker but I definitely wish they had been longer this year. We have spent so many days creating memories that will last forever as I took far too many photos. We are now back at school and at some point my eldest daughter became a Key Stage 2 student …

Yup, you read it right, I’m sending my eldest to summer school. A month or so ago we received a letter from P1s school offering her a place for the summer school.

Reflecting On A Year Of Nursery

It’s that time of the year when suddenly we realise there’s just a few weeks or even days left of the schooling year. It terrifies me every year but for some reason I’m feeling a lot more sentimental this time round as we wave goodbye to P2s very first year of nursery. I love her nursery and the setting has …

The influx of happy children dressed up as their favourite book characters over social media can only mean one thing, it’s world book day! A day for celebrating books and reading.

Parent consultation evening a few weeks ago really opened my eyes to the struggles P1 has academically. Numberbundle contacted me a few weeks ago and I was super excited about the concept but never got round to actually doing it with P1.

A Treat Idea For Nursery School Friends

Haribo sweets are most definitely a popular choice when it comes to getting a little treat for your children’s friends when it’s their birthdays. I used to go with a carrier bag full of sweets, sweets I happened to hate as a child. With it being the first year that P2 has to dish out the treats for her birthday, …

To my Princess 2, You are now 2 years and 7 months old, well three days ago you were any way. This past month you’re vocabulary has come on leaps and bounds.
