A walk home from school together is cool

Having a natter when you’re walking to school is a great way to start the day. From spotting signs to counting white lines – there are endless ways to amuse yourselves every single day. Watch this short video to see all the ways you can make the most of every walk-to-school day.

Handy tips

Get your kids to help a ‘book buddy’ to read. Buddies can be a younger sister or brother, or even a favourite soft toy. Letting your child help their book buddy to read will keep them occupied, and help them with their own reading.

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.

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