Five Minute Mum: Time For School, is aimed at roughly ages 4-8. It’s a guide for both parents and children on those first few years at school. 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. Each bit includes fun games and activities that make homework go from being a chore to being an activity the whole family can join in with. It’s a book to bridge between what goes on at school, and what goes on a home with your child’s learning, and hopefully it makes it seem less daunting for those of us that haven’t stepped foot inside an educational establishment since we walked out of our own school gates!
Phonics! Number sentences! Reading schemes! School uniforms! Daisy Upton has two children, and used to be a teaching assistant, so is more than familiar with the reality of being a parent.
This book is packed full of games and activities to help children feel confident and excited about learning. They -and you! - will get help with letters, numbers and everything in between.
Daisy's games only take five minutes to set up and five minutes to tidy up you can support them at home without wanting to bang your head on the kitchen table.
