Free Early Learning Supplements

Make learning fun and develop your child’s skills in Maths, Times Tables and Spelling with our Early Learning Supplements.

Week One (Ages 5-6) - 25th - 30th April

Boost your child's confidence and support learning at home with our Early Learning supplements in association with Andrew Brodie free inside the Belfast Telegraph from Monday 25th to Saturday 30th April. 

During KS1, children develop skills in number work as well as in measurement and shape, and make use of these skills as they start to approach mathematical ‘problems’. In their KS1 literacy work, children are taught to read and write using a variety of approaches including phonics. They widen their vocabulary and learn an increasing range of spellings, enabling them to begin to express themselves through their writing.

Each supplement has been carefully written for children at an early stage in their primary education and provides step-by-step activities to develop and consolidate the skills assessed in school

We feature work on counting, time and shape as well as giving lots of practice in the early stages of addition and subtraction.
