The national curriculum outlines what a child should learn and know by the end of each school year. It also contains lots of information for parents and teachers on effectively delivering this and checking a child's progress in each major area and subject.

Sounds useful, but the problem is that most parents don't know where to find these guides and when they can find them, they are huge...

Instead of these mammoth guides, many parents wish they had an easy checklist of what their child should know by the end of each year.

So we made them!

Having a good grasp of your child's curriculum for the year will definitely help you better understand what they are doing in school, where they may need help, and what to talk about around the dinner table.
