Hello and welcome to Summer Discovers!

My name is Gemma and I’m a Scottish Primary School Teacher. I currently teach full time but also have a huge amount of experience teaching children with Additional Support Needs, Tutoring and running pre-school phonics classes.

I love all aspects of teaching but my passion lies in early childhood development and early learning through play.

This website aims to give parents and teachers ideas on how to support young children to develop skills and an understanding of basic numeracy, literacy and more through play based activities using every day materials found around the home. I will explore gross and fine motor development, story telling and engaging young readers, the language of numeracy, building blocks of literacy and how you can help your little person to be ready for school.

In addition to posting blog entries I have attached all of my social media links to make browsing as easy as possible for busy parents and educators.

My daughter Summer is 5 years old, she will be helping me to test activities and leading her learning as we share this journey with you.
