About this deal

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. We either read his books TO him, or we read alternative pages with him, showing him how we sounded out words and then letting him try to copy.

There will undoubtedly be moments of blissful family joy and moments where you check your calendar to see how many days until they are back in school but either way I hope these ideas mean at least there might be a few more of the joyful moments. If you’re doing a little something here and there to support them then you are building those crucial blocks.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. So, to try and keep her sanity she started to come up with quick, easy games using stuff from around the house. Daisy Upton has two children, and used to be a teaching assistant, so is more than familiar with the reality of being a parent.

Today he read me a funny story from a Biff, Chip and Kipper book about ‘Gran’s Glasses’ where he confidently sounded out and read words like ‘shelf’ and ‘bringing’ and ‘pizza’. It is not included in promotions available to our main range products, as stated in our terms of service. It’s really tempting when you see your child struggling to do something to just step in and do it for them. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).Once upon a time, Daisy Upton was a Teaching Assistant working in schools, where she drank hot cups of tea. I always have Northern Dough Co Pizza dough in my freezer because they have loads of great recipes and you can defrost their frozen dough in the microwave.

Hand washing – here’s our hand washing song we sing which means they soap and scrub for long enough. When her two children turned 3 and 1 she found her love of coming up with silly games to make learning more fun in the classroom finally came into its own at home, and she began blogging about what she was up to. Here you will find all of my five minute posts on tips, tricks and advice, from things I’ve learned along the way. Switch off the telly or any distractions and just have a little chat about all the lovely things they will do at school. For some children being able to draw simply requires showing them how to hold a pencil (one block) but for others they need to be shown how to draw each shape individually with support (lots of blocks).But when she had her own children, she found she never quite managed to drink a brew while it was still remotely warm. Five Minute Mum: On the Go is the ultimate companion to any journey, staycation or holiday: 80 games to keep little ones happily - and quietly! Daisy has two children in primary school, and used to be a teaching assistant, so she knows her stuff.
