Fitting more time into your day with Read, Write, Count

We all know what it feels like to want another 5 minutes in bed. How about 2 minutes for tooth brushing? Or 10 minutes until tea time? Fit more time into your day with this fun video, and find out how telling the time together can make every minute count.

Handy tips

Ask your child to write about a castle they would build for a King or Queen. They could think about how many rooms it would have, what might be in the rooms, and what they’d be used for.

Try taking it in turns to say alternate numbers to 30, while rolling or throwing a ball back and forth. Then, if you’re up for a challenge, try it backwards and in 2s. Start at different numbers, or if you don’t have a ball handy pat your tummy or clap your hands while you count.

Ask them to write a story about the insect they saw. What’s their name? How big is their family? Where are they going? Do they have any superpowers?
