Galt Rainbow lab - this kit is fun to do anyway but the pipettes, tubes and little pots are brilliant for basic potion play afterwards using the food colouring. The firs thing to do is validate those feelings in your little one telling them that is OK to feel that way and it’s totally natural and there are lots of things we can do together to help ease those nervous butterflies and worries.

It doesn’t mean they won’t get there, it might take a bit longer and require more effort but they will still get to that level, slowly building with the little blocks. Fun activities and games to help with letters, numbers and everything in between - the ultimate handbook to support your child through their first years of school from bestselling author and social media superstar Daisy Upton AKA Five Minute Mum. Each bit includes fun games and and activities that make homework go from being a chore to being an activity the whole family can join in with. It explains the broad basics of the curriculum in a really easy to understand way and cuts through all the jargon to tell you exactly what it is you need to actually know as a parent supporting your child at home.The book band reminded the same, he still often sounded out ‘m-a-n’ and said “biscuit”, we still reached for the bottle of wine after ‘reading’ with him! My kids played with them for 30 seconds and made the kind of mess that you’re still finding the remnants of 3 weeks later. Start once you know your school place, mentioning it every so often, then as you approach a month or two before try and have a chat every couple of days or so. Now you might have thought at the beginning of this post that there was going to be a lot more about introducing the alphabet and numbers in these top tips but there aren’t for a reason.

It’s a big logistical change to a routine you’ve probably had for a few years now, and a new prospect for your child and you as a parent.

So, to try and keep her sanity she started to come up with quick, easy games using stuff from around the house. Zips and buttons – play games designed to help with finger strength and fine motor skills like The Washing Line or the spraying game here or pushing pasta through small holes in a box. A little magic cuddle button and visual reminder they are loved and connected to you even when you aren’t together. You could read it all at once or dip into it during the build up to this big new adventure - it’s entirely up to you and your little one!

At Books2Door, we believe that reading is a fundamental skill that every child should have to help improve their vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking skills. Tell them what you enjoyed about school, as hearing you explaining that you went too and liked certain bit will help them to discuss things. Unlike nursery staff, the ratio of adults to children in a school is often very different and they don’t have time to help every little person zip up their coat or put their trousers back on after PE. I come up with easy games and activities for little kids aged 1 and up, that take five minutes to set up (which means they also take five minute to clear away again - hurrah). All of our books are 100% brand new, unread and purchased directly from the publishers in bulk allowing us to pass the huge savings on to you!During the ‘home learning’ phase of 2021, lots of you were wishing my new book, (which has lots of games for school age children from Early Years to Key Stage 1) was available now so my publishers heard you and decided to release a chapter of it early, just for download. In any of the games we played or when learning something new, whenever my little one’s got frustrated at not being able to do something, I would always calmly explain there’s no need to get cross if you can ask for help. Daisy likes to celebrate this fact by eating large quantities of chocolate oranges and creme eggs (season dependant), and dancing in the kitchen.
