The start of the School year can be full of mixed emotions, excitement, apprehension and can be very daunting for both children and parents. This time around sees Luc heading off to Secondary School for the first time while all three younger children will be in Primary school. As a parent I want to do my best to help my children’s eduction and support them as much as possible.
With all four children now at school its important to me to find resources that are suitable not only for their age but also the Key Stage they are at in the curriculum. The last two years I have bought a couple of books from the Letts range of activity books. They provide a fun way of helping to introduce your child to key skills in Maths and English. I tend to use them to dip in and out off with the children, sometimes when they don’t have homework and especially over school holidays. One of the most important things to me is that the children have all enjoyed using these books which makes it a more enjoyable experience for all.
With Luc moving to Secondary School it brings a move to the next level of books which will continue to support Luc’s learing journey from Key Stage 3 to GCSE and A Level revision. This is all new territory for me as a parent so knowing I can refer to Collin’s range of books is very reassuring.
In addition to the books Collins have put together a really helpful downloadable Back to School Guide for parents. You can download your own copy of the Back to School Guide here In addition to the Back to School Guide Collins are also offering a 25% Discount with free postage and packaging on their Back to School Range until 30th September 2015.
