Clippasafe Waterproof Mattress Sheet (Single Bed) by Clippasafe

5.0 out of 5 stars best thing so far, 28 Mar 2014
I had gone for the slightly fabric-y mattress covers, which do the job in terms of absorbancy but they have to be washed after every accident and are expensive to have too many. This can be wiped clean so can stay where it is! You can hear it rustle a little but this hasn't presented us with a problem - I suppose it depends how light a sleeper your child is. The ties are very long and keep it well in place on a full-sized single bed. Ideal for night-time training.

My daughter is in reception and this is exactly what she's been learning at school. The wipe-clean aspect is well-known to be great as children don't have to worry about making mistakes.

Children have to count what's in the picture, draw one more thing and then add them together. The next page goes up to higher numbers, the next explores the various sums which all add up to 10 and so on. My daughter got this today at the end of a long week and has just spent a full hour working through the pages she likes it so much. Can't get her… Read more
Lulu and the Hamster in the Night by Hilary McKay
5.0 out of 5 stars Well-written, 25 Nov 2013
I've just started reading longer, chapter books to my daughter from the library. Most of what she goes for involves sappy, fluffy animals, fairy dust and very poor writing. This however, has been a highlight. The characters are fun and believable, there is enough about the cute animal to keep a 4 year old interested, but it is still in the context of a real situation and there is a decent plot. Hoping Santa brings her some more from the series...
