Are you looking for quality, enriching activities to enjoy with your grandchild? Core Knowledge UK resources help you to support your grandchild's education by introducing them to a world of knowledge and opportunities while taking part in fun and low-cost educational activities during the quality time you spend together.

Core Knowledge UK resources enable you to become more involved in your grandchild's learning, and in their life. In addition, these educational materials promote discipline and respect within communities, and they help develop social cohesion within our society.

What Your Year 1 Child Needs to Know and subsequent titles, one for each year group, provide beautifully illustrated, engaging introductions to the knowledge that should be shared by all in society. Read familiar and favourite stories and poems, talk about traditional sayings that impart wisdom, teach your grandchild about British history and geography, participate in visual arts and music activities together, practise maths with everyday objects found in your home and explore the wonders of nature together.

Core Knowledge UK resource books establish a coherent, knowledge-rich foundation for your grandchild's education. Using these books will assure you that you are supporting your grandchild's education while you participate in meaningful activities together. Each book contains suggested activities, along with advice on further resources to enrich your grandchild's learning at home and in your community. One grandparent commented about using What Your Year 1 Child Needs to Know with her granddaughter:

'Can we do the book?' asks my granddaughter when I pick her up from school. I have found it provides fascinating sessions with her that are obviously interesting and enjoyable for us both. So far we have sorted all my socks into various groups, stripes, colours, spots; are growing some pumpkin seeds; have made a weather vane; played with lots of shapes and sizes of cut out card; done some measuring; looked at continents and points of the compass and read lots of stories and poems. The book is very well arranged into subject topics and there are excellent instructions for preparing what one needs. I look forward to using the next book in the series.
