About the site Reading with Flick

The aim of this site is to help you and your child find out more about the ideas behind the National Curriculum. It shows your child how knowledge builds as he or she progresses through school and how different parts of the National Curriculum work together and fit into the greater scheme of things.

The approach is fun, and features a gang of three children and a very bright dog who find themselves in exciting and amusing situations.

For each age group, 5 - 7 years, 7 - 9 years and 9 - 11 years, there are a series of adventure activities, games and print-outs.

You'll probably be more involved if your child is aged 5 to 6. If your child is older, he or she will want to try out the ideas by themselves, or with their mates - both online and out and about.
