When Scarlett joined primary school last September a whole new world was opened to me.  Primary Times Essex magazine was introduced to me quite early on in the year, long before I had made friends and learnt about local activities though word of mouth, so I welcomed all the information I suddenly had at my fingertips.

Primary Times Essex Magazine 

Primary Times essex Magazine

Primary Times Essex magazine is a wonderful ‘What’s on and where’ guide of family activities and events aimed at primary school age in children Essex. The magazine is packed full of information on life with children, great competitions, clubs to attend and days out to enjoy together.  It is free of charge and you are likely to find it stuffed somewhere in your children’s bookbag as they fly out of the school gates!

    I too love the world of info Primary Times and Kid Around provide. Because.of them we’ve done loads but I especially liked it when I saw an ad about an Apple day at a farm in Chelmsford last year. It was a fantastic day

    When my daughter was 5 she hid her book bag upstairs which seemed unusual so I sneaked upstairs and got it to have a look. I found a worm wrapped up in tissue. I asked her why there was a worm in her book bag and she said that her and her best friend both brought one home to try and save them. I couldn’t tell her off because it was too cute and funny.

    Neither of mine are at school yet, but I often find a collection of items in my daughter’s preschool bag. Usually leaves, stones, bits of rubbish from the walk to preschool. But the worst is when I find things ‘borrowed’ from other kids – shoes, hats or toys! :(
