What's inside a Letterbox parcel?

Everything you’ll find in the Letterbox Club parcels has been carefully curated by our experts with an understanding of the needs of children experiencing vulnerability or disadvantage, so you can be confident that all the books and numeracy resources are age appropriate and sensitively chosen to engage children 

  • 1-3 reading books from a range of different genres, selected by our independent panel of experts to capture children’s interest and imagination.   

  • An age-appropriate maths game and resources to develop number confidence and engage with numeracy in an accessible way that builds self-regulation, perseverance and problem-solving strategies.    

  • A letter from the book author describing the chosen book or sharing ideas and experiences to help children feel special and valued.   

  • Exciting extra resources such as bookmarks, pens, notepads and calculators enticing children to engage in the parcels and support independent learning in class or at home.   

  • A postcard from the Letterbox Club team providing a space for children to share their thoughts and practise their writing (remember to send them back as we love to hear what they think!).
