Letterbox Club parcels

Children usually receive their parcels from May to October, providing support over the summer holidays as well as supporting transition to the next school year.


 There are six different parcel sets:

  • Purple - for children aged 3-5, Early Years Foundation Stage
  • Orange - for children aged 5-7, Years 1-2
  • Yellow - for children aged 7-9, Years 3-4 (the books selected for Yellow parcel are for emergent readers)
  • Blue - for children aged 7-9, Years 3-4 (the books selected for Blue parcel are for independent readers)
  • Red - for children aged 9-11, Years 5-6
  • Green - for children aged 11-13, Years 7-8

If a child is working at a lower or higher level, you can choose the parcel set that will suit them most. Nothing inside the parcels states an age or year group.

Each child registered will receive six separate parcels, with a total of up to 14 books, 10 maths games and around 40 items of quality stationery.

Parcel contents shown for example only and will vary.

More detail about the parcel contents can be found in the Letterbox Club Coordinators' area
