Brilliant books for children's Christmas presents

I always adored receiving books as presents when I was a little girl and, now I'm a mother, I love it when my children are given books too. A book can open your mind to new worlds, take you on adventures and introduce you to characters who end up as best friends - and all...

Ditch the TV this Christmas Day

I blogged about Christmas films last week and it made me think about the central role that television plays in the UK's Christmas Day celebrations. From the Queen's speech to countless Christmas specials and ,of course, classic Christmas Day films like The Wizard of...

The Best Christmas Films

One question that my teachers and I are frequently asked by Perform parents is ?Where should my child be at this stage?? And if I'm completely honest, as a mother myself, it's a question that I find myself asking about my own children too. I guess, as parents,...
