Back to School with Letts – Giveaway

Much as I don’t really want to admit it to myself, we are well and truly in the throes of August, which means that September and “Back to School” is on the horizon.  Although we’ve been off school for five weeks now, it feels like it’s gone so quickly and I can hardly believe we only have a couple of weeks of summer left.

I picked up a pen yesterday to fill in a form and felt like I’d forgotten how to write properly as it had been that long – a feeling I have had every September – both as a child and now as a teacher myself!  Any teacher will tell you that there is often noticeable “summer learning loss”, that at the start of a new school year children will take a little while to remember things they had learned and to get going again.

Letts Back to School prize

Letts have some fabulous engaging and motivating learning books available to help your child to get their brain back on track and ready to learn again!  All of the books are designed to support the national curriculum so that you know they are reinforcing what your child is being taught at school.

To help get your child ready for Back to School, I’m giving away a bundle of Letts books tailored to your child age worth £50!  Just complete as many of the Rafflecopter options as you would like, ensuring to do this accurately to avoid disqualification.

    I learnt by repeating over and over again but for the children I had a CD where they sang along and with this they learnt much quicker.

    Songs and games. My child has difficulty with numbers and learns visually and by doing so I’ve made a game for her times tables out of cards one with the sum then she has to find the card with the answer match them together

    9x table is the easiest i found it goes forward then you count down backwards so for example 9 18 27 36 45 / 54 63 72 81 90 turn then around 😀
