Letts Wild About - Maths & English book review

We were asked to review Letts exciting new range of Math’s and English books published in a series called Letts Wild About.

The books are aimed at 9 to 11 year olds (Key Stage 2) and are a great way to improve math’s and English skills while exploring the wider world.  There are 9 books in total with 5 split between maths and english aimed at 9-11 year olds with a further 4 books split between 9-10 and 10-11 year olds.

Retailing at £4.99 each they are on par with a lot of childrens magazines yet so much more educational and FUN!  YES - FUN!!  Ethan loved the books and even asked if he could do more when he came home from school at night!

The book are not just 'sums and words' they are educational with little snippits of information about animals and the world around them.  Ethan loved the fact it that you could correct misspelled words and pick new ones to replace them with, also that it gave a point system where it said to try again etc which actually encouraged him to redo the questions until it was right.

Letts Wild About books are based on the new primary curriculum that was introduced in schools from September.
Parents can feel reassured and confident that these books will fully support what is being taught at school.

Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom Scale with Electro-Mechanical Weight Dial - review.

We were sent these scales to review in conjunction with my new years diet and exercise regime! 

 I love the fact they are so sleek looking and only switch on when you step on them.

Im loving the fact that they do not do stones and pounds so its no shock when you step on them! ha 

I have to search on the net to find out what it equates to so its not such a smack in the face (and doesnt feel as though its saying 'one at a time please') lol

I would highly recommend these as they are clear, accurate and modern looking!

    Synchronized electro-mechanical Dial and LCD automatically illuminate and instantly point to your weight in lbs and kg, for easy-to read results in all light conditions and from any angle.
    Visually stunning design incorporates a 14 cm (5.5 inch) dial and integrated digital display with stylish chrome accents to create a distinctive retro look with the accuracy of modern technology.
    Professional quality scale features and an oversized platform made of impact-resistant tempered glass for ideal stability, and a new built-in alarm that reminds you to measure your weight at the same time each day.
    Uses 4 high precision GX sensors that weigh up to 180 kg (400 lbs) in 0.1 kg or 0.2 lbs increments, with StepOn technology that captures precise weight measurements upon contact.
    Auto-calibrated and automatically turns off to conserve battery life. Runs on 3 AAA batteries with a Low Battery Indicator (batteries included). Satisfaction guaranteed.

Available at the reduced price of £19.99 via Amazon

We were asked to review the new Fruit Frollipops and Evie loved them!  She preferred the strawberry as they were a really strong taste yet so sweet at the same time!  

Its nice to know I can give them 'sweets' without all of the sugar in normal candy.
