Playing Cards with Children part 1

Card games are a fun way for children to learn maths, strategy and social skills. In this short series of blogs we will look at different fun games you can play at any time.

This game develops number recognition, the naming of suits and cards, memory skills and concentration.

Take out the Ace, 2, 3, 4 and 5 of hearts and spades from a pack of cards.

Shuffle these 10 cards and then lay them out, face down in a random pattern.


A Day in the Life...

In the latest instalment of the "Day in the Life" series of blog posts, EBU Competitions Administrator & Selection Committee Secretary  Louise Crisp describes her typical work day:

I wake up at 7:30am, while having breakfast I like to catch up with the daily news and have a snuggle with my cat Jess on the sofa. I leave my house at 8:45am to make the 5-minute journey to the office in Aylesbury.
