Product description

From the Back Cover

** Now fully revised and updated **

What is your child learning each day in primary school?
How can you tell if they are doing well or badly?
And what can you do to help?

This practical, detailed, newly updated and user-friendly guide contains absolutely everything the busy parent needs to know about primary schooling under the new national curriculum, helping your child to flourish every step of the way.

Taking you year by year through your child's schooling, What Every Parent Needs to Know offers simple explanations of:
- What they'll be taught and why (from phonics checks to SPAG tests)
- What they need to know at the start of each year
- What they should be able to achieve at its end
- The games and exercises you can do at home to help out

Not only will this guide help you understand your children's journey through primary school, but it will also help you prepare, encourage and nurture them.

'Crammed with useful websites and ingenious apps while also offering patient and detailed explanations about what exactly the new National Curriculum consists of and how best to approach it' Independent
