Oxford International Primary Maths: Stage 1: Age 5-6: Teacher's Guide 1 by Caroline Clissold, Linda Glithro, Janet Rees, Cherri Moseley

Oxford International Primary Maths takes an enquiry-based approach to learning mathematics, engaging students in the topics through asking questions that make them think, and activities that encourage them to explore and practise. As students progress through the course, they not only learn about mathematical concepts, but also how to use problem solving techniques in their approach to studying the subject. The topics are explored in careful stages, introducing different aspects at a pace that allows students to absorb and practise what they have learned. Photos, illustrations and diagrams are used to help students explore and understand, and the language is clear and easy for primary children to understand. For the teacher, the Teacher's Guides provide step-by-step notes for each lesson, guiding students through the topic, and supporting students with their language development when needed

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!
