Realising the potential of Children in Care

Letterbox has been helping our children to love learning at home!

Posted on by Judy Molyneux

Letterbox is a fantastic project where children aged 5-11 years can receive a parcel through the post every month from May to October – and it includes a selection of books suited to the child’s ability and interest, maths games plus an assortment of stationary equipment.

BOXVSK have bought the parcels again this year and they have been well used and enjoyed by foster carers sharing the reading and maths games with their children!

My two get so excited when they get home from school and see their parcels have arrived.

Love the little finger puppet and soft toy in the parcel, we use the puppet to help tell the story and keep our little one involved in the book

My child likes to put the stationary equipment into her pencil case ready to take to school the next day” The books are fab!

It’s nice to have different books to read with my child at bedtime, we used them for paired reading

Thank you VSK I love my parcels.

It’s nice to get things in the post, that is just for me

I love the books; my favourite ones are the non-fiction and joke books

This continues to be a great resource for our young people to receive and if you would like more information please contact Jenny Finch at VSK.
