NEW - Alphabets, Weather.. and Football!

24th May 2018
With the FIFA World Cup now drawing closer, we've gone a bit footie mad. You can see the first results in the newsletter below. If your kids are footie mad too, keep checking the website over the next few days because we've got lots more to come.
You'll also find some fun new alphabet printables, the next two in our new "illuminated alphabet" colouring collection, weather puzzles and dot to dots and a really remarkable "famous person" of the week - Mae Jemison. And Shelly has some great ideas for Ice Cream Maths in this week's guest post!
If you are wondering why you've had so many emails this week about GDPR and Privacy Policies, it's because we legally have to tell you by 25th May what we've done. So here goes...
We've updated our Privacy Statement to comply with the EU's new General Data Protection Regulation. Having looked into everything very carefully we have decided to go above and beyond what's required, reduced cookies to the bare minimum and simplified our Privacy Statement, Cookie Policy and Terms and Conditions too. For us it has all about keeping your personal information as safe and private as possible and making the website as useful for you as we can.
And now, on with what's new this week!
