Starting School Club

Starting-School-Club-logo (3).jpg

I have joined together with Tales of Me Books to create the Starting School Club. Over the next few months we will share information, do live Instagram sessions where we answer questions and share lots of resources and free downloads to help as you get ready to send your child to school.

Between us we have years of teaching experience in Reception classes, we all  have children already in school and all have children starting school this year. 

I'm Anna. I created Mini Writers Club to help show parents how they can support their children with phonics, spelling, reading and writing. I share activity ideas, phonics guides and sell phonics resources


Here are the faces behind Tales of Me Book. Natalie (on the left) came up with the idea of the Tales using her experience as an early years teacher and making the now ‘prototype’ of the Tales for her daughter when she started nursery. On the right is Kirsten who brings their ideas to life with her colourful, humorous and brilliant illustrations & designs.
