The first time I saw a book by Steve Antony was The Queen’s Hat at the National Gallery’s shop. I totally fell in love with all his picture books and sense of humour. Just read this interview with Steve to understand why I love him so much. Ah, by the way my 10 year old son Diego also loves his books. With themes ranging from the Queen to ‘saying please’ to the futility of war, Steve Antony’s picture books are must haves in every personal library. Steve has just published a lovely Christmas book, The Queen’s present. It’s most certainly my favorite Christmas book this year.
Every year at the end of November we expect Covent Garden to dress up for Christmas. Today once again the magic has been brought back to the Piazza by the annual LEGO Christmas installation. The man behind this magic is Duncan Titmarsh, the UK’s only LEGO Certified Professional, who has been creating impressive LEGO installations for years.
Can your kids cook? A new report suggests they should have mastered twenty- five dishes by age elevenNov 28 2016
Wouldn’t it be lovely if the kids could take care of meal times? London Mums would be very happy about it, wouldn’t we all… Well a new report suggests they should be able to do just that by age 11. Commissioned to launch the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator, the research of 2,000 parents found that 25 years ago the average child could make six dishes by the age of 11 – however the modern kid can cook only four.
It’s wise to start planning early for your child’s move to senior school. Begin by finding out which local schools are available to your child, and consider how far you would consider commuting across London for the right school.
If you are considering selective state or independent schools, it’s essential to have your child academically assessed. This will allow you to find out if they could pass the 11+ (and whether they are likely to thrive in an academically selective senior school). Good assessment feedback should also include advice on which schools would be a good fit for your child’s ability and academic potential.
If you decide a selective school is right for your child, this is where the journey through the 11+ entrance exam begins!
Forget about Black Friday deals… They are often not authentic. London Mums magazine has a dedicated site with 60% off deals on theatre and London attractions throughout the year. This year for Christmas I will ask Santa to bring me vouchers or tickets to either a West End Show or to a nice London Attraction.
We all have houses packed with stuff we don’t need and I feel that we generally have too much of everything. So I have set up a page with the best deals in town. See if you find something you like too. Here are a few suggestions for you but on the main site you can find a lot more that might appeal more to your taste.
