Handy tips

Lots of kids are fascinated by space, and the idea of walking on the moon. You could take a chat about space travel even further, and watch some YouTube videos together, or interviews with astronaut Tim Peake. A question like ‘What would you take into space?’ could inspire some fun replies! And you could help your child to write down five items they would take into space with them.

Try breakfast by numbers, using your morning cereal packs to count the number of words beginning with the same letter. Or, for fun, you could try and find rhyming words together.

If you come across a new word while you’re reading a story, try making up funny sentences with the new word.
