OFFICE PINBOARD Yolanda: At the moment I am in the beautiful, picturesque Vietnam and one of my absolute favourite things to do on holiday is curl up on the beach with a really good book! If your [primary aged] child loves to read, I recommend the following three books be added to their Summer reading list: 1) Attack of the Giant Sea Spiders by Gareth P Jones Utterly draft but incredibly funny! The story follows the adventures of a pirate crew who are faced with one mishap after another…

OFFICE PINBOARD Helen: "I had great fun this week trying out a new activity - Chinese Ink Painting! This was a birthday gift generously bought for me by our wonderful directors, Eleanor and Olivia. I was so amazed by the amount of time it takes for one to master this art and the skill level involved... I definitely need a lot more practice before I can even call myself an amateur of this art!"

OFFICE PINBOARD Alexandra: The summer holidays have begun. My family holiday is a traditional British seaside experience involving unpredictable weather, cream teas and long summer evenings by the sea. Shirley Hughes describes the classic British seaside in her "Alfie" books and includes evocative illustrations. Alfie and his sister Annie-Rose explore rockpools, play in the waves and picnic with their family just as generations of my own family have done each summer.

OFFICE PINBOARD Eleanor: An update on our nature walk which was a huge success. We ran around hunting for treasures to stick on the nature map and my son has proudly showed it off to anyone who will look! I think an urban treasure hunt might be fun next time. Do you have any suggestions on how we could do it?

OFFICE PINBOARD Yolanda: Summer holidays are right around the corner and Evie and I are both very excited! One of my favourite things to do when I am travelling is to keep a travel journal with photos, postcards, drawings, ticket subs etc. Why not get your children to keep their own this year? It is a lovely way to document all their amazing memories, plus they make wonderful keepsakes. As you can see, Evie has already begun hers!
