Involved Parents Make for Successful Pupils
How can you access a better education for your child? Learn how best to support your child's learning at home and give your child a world of new opportunities by exploring the Core Knowledge UK resource books and taking part in enriching, low-cost activities with your child.
The Core Knowledge UK curriculum used in the classroom seeks to foster stronger and more productive relations between schools and parents. This curriculum operates within the overarching framework of the Core Knowledge Sequence UK. A series of resource books for parents and teachers flesh out this framework, providing you with a meaningful opportunity to become involved with your child's schoolwork. Take a look at the first of these books, What Your Year 1 Child Needs to Know. Parents of children at Core Knowledge UK schools can be confident that they and their child's teacher are on the same page, in many cases literally.
A Core Knowledge UK education is not just for those children who attend a Core Knowledge UK school. What Your Year 1 Child Needs to Know and subsequent titles, one for each year group, provide beautifully illustrated, engaging introductions to the essential knowledge that should be shared by all in society. These books can be used independently of your child's school curriculum to establish a coherent, knowledge-rich foundation for their education.
Using these books will assure you that you are supporting your child's learning while you participate in engaging educational activities during your quality time together. Each book contains suggested activities for you and your child, along with advice on further resources to enrich learning at home. Many grandparents and other family members have also found using Core Knowledge UK resource books helpful, and fun!
You can find out more about the What Your Year 1 Child Needs to Know resource book and purchase it. You can also register for our newsletter to receive updates on the publication of subsequent volumes and new Core Knowledge UK activities for you and your child.
