View digital editionIf you've reached that stage where your list of stall ideas would require an unfeasibly large army of volunteers, then our summer fair feature is definitely for you! Taking all the recommendations we've received from PTAs via email, Facebook and phone over the last few years, we've come up with The Big Summer Fair Top 50 - use this to pare down your list. Apologies if you come away with a few new ideas, but how could you not want to run a 'yukky dip'?

In this issue, we have tried to give you even more of what you love, including a feature on Grant Fundraising and Secondary School Success. We also have some exciting testimonials - my particular favourites are the It's A Knockout inflatables day and Family Film Fun, a diary of running a movie night.

On the education front, we examine the changes affecting the history curriculum in A Grasp Of The Past. With foreign languages becoming compulsory at KS2 from September 2014, we explore a few of our favourite MFL resources in our Language Learning feature.

Our next issue, together with The Essential Guide to Fundraising, comes out on 11 September. If you have any tips and ideas you'd like to share, we'd love to include them, so drop me an email at

Have a fabulous summer term everyone!
