Is your child in Year 5 or 6? Find everyday ways to help with their literacy and numeracy skill development with our suite of thirty parent resources for Years 5-6!

What’s available?

Learning Potential has thirty articles with tips on how to help your child practise the literacy and numeracy skills they are taught at school in Years 5 and 6. The ideas are simple, practical, and designed to be part of your everyday life with your child – whether you’re reading, playing, shopping, chatting, gardening, cooking, or just hanging out together. Many of the articles also suggest an online activity.
