Reading Eggs

Learning to read with Reading Eggs

Those of you that know me personally, or follow me on my social media accounts, will already know that I’m a massive fan of Reading Eggs.
It’s been in my life for six years now, because both of my children learned to read using it!
For those of you that don’t know what it is, or haven’t heard of it, here’s some more information…..

Super Colour Deluxe Aquadoodle from Tomy

We were kindly sent the new Super Colour Deluxe Aquadoodle from Tomy, for Miss Olivia (and her Brother) to try out!  We’re no strangers to an aquadoodle-one of my favourite things to take for Olivia to do on holiday, or on long car journeys, is the portable, smaller one of these-they fold away neatly and make no mess!

One Year….Changing Schools and Changing Lives

Some of you may already know the story (or some of it), of why and how we ended up moving Kye, mid-term from his last school to his current one.
Most however, don’t know the full story, and I have rarely told it.
I couldn’t tell you what stopped me really-I think it was a mixture of things; not wanting to rock the boat; I know people who’s children still attend the previous school-and I know there’s a loyalty there.  I also think a lot of my reasoning, was sheer stubbornness-I didn’t think I needed to share our reasons for changing something so huge in our Son’s life, because we knew we were doing the right thing for him-and no explanation was needed for that.

We were really lucky to have been sent this beautiful bundle of early learning books from It’s Your Story.

Learning at home, is something that always has been really important to me-although we’re not a Home Education family-my children both attend school and nursery, I still like to support their learning at home. Continue reading

Teaching children the importance of saving the rainforests.

For those of you that didn’t catch my news on my facebook page last week, Mayflower Blogs has had a little makeover!  A new website design and layout are the main feature, but there are also some new topics added that are going to be quite prominent in 2018.

One of which, is the Education tab.
I write a lot about my Son and Daughters education over on my social media platforms, and am keen to make writing about their progression and learning journeys here on the website a lot more this year.

I’m beginning with the importance of teaching children about saving the rainforests-which is coinciding with Kyes term three topic at his primary school. Continue reading
