The cost per child is £145 (including VAT). The net cost is £138.75 per child (VAT is not charged on the books; only the other items in the parcels).

 

There are five sets of parcels available:
  • Letterbox Orange - designed for children in Year 1, to follow them into Year 2
  • Letterbox Blue - designed for children in Year 3, to follow them into Year 4
  • Letterbox Red - designed for children in Year 5, to follow them into Year 6
  • Letterbox Green - designed for children in Year 7, to follow them into Year 8
  • Letterbox Yellow - designed for children aged 7-9 who have not yet started reading independently. Maths materials focus on counting numbers of objects up to 10

 

The Benefits:
  • Can significantly improve children's reading and numeracy
  • Encourages children and their parents/carers to read and play games together
  • Gives enjoyment to children through owning their own books
  • Supports children over the summer as they move into the next school year

 

The parcels will be delivered in bulk to schools in May. Children should then receive one parcel per month for the six months from May to October - so they get six parcels each in total.
