30th January 2003: FREE KEY STAGE 1 MATHS RESOURCES: Our thanks to Eleanor who wrote in asking where to find a print-able page with numbers 1-1000. We didn't know of one so have created a page here on the site, along with a square grid of numbers 1-100 along with free worksheets for marking up prime numbers, square numbers, numbers divisible by 2, 3, 4 etc. - see Numbers 1-100 for links to the free worksheets and the 1-1000 page.
28th January 2003: NEWSLETTER: Project HappyChild News for January/February 2003 is now on line - click here.
26th January 2003: ACCELERATED LEARNING: Michael Tipper's latest Feature Article is now on line, "Learning for those with a Visual Impairment" - click here for the index to Feature Articles. Michael's still working flat out with speaking engagements and presentations to schools, but will be sending through his January article as soon as time allows :)
18th January 2003: EVENTS CALENDAR: All scheduled events of which we're aware have now been added to the Calendar, everything imaginable from the 2003 SENSE City Speed Skate to the Grosvenor House Arts & Antique Fair Charity Gala Evening where Elizabeth Hurley (patron of KIDS) is scheduled to be the Guest of Honour. Endless treks and challenges ranging from trekking into The Sahara to the Mongolian Horse Riding Challenge, and a growing number of charity sites will allow you to build a sponsorship page on their site to make fundraising easier for the required sponsorship for various events.
More charities are now offering Corporate Challenges (over a wide range of themes) and there are also many smaller events to attend, or fundraising packs for those who'd like to organise their own events to help raise funds for disadvantaged children - click here for the Events Calendar with links to further info on the huge range of events listed.
In the process of building the Events Calendar there have been a number of significant changes to the Project HappyChild Directory and if you have a cached or printed out version of the Directory, you may wish to update this.
16th January 2003: EVENTS CALENDAR: The new Events Calendar for 2003 is quite extraordinary, with a breathtaking range of activities offered by the Charities in the Project HappyChild Directory.
Ranging from dog-sledding in Sweden to a French Alps Motorcycle Challenge, from the Great Women's Run in Manchester (routed through Coronation Street!) to a New York Bridges Walk to a North Pole Trek & Ski Expedition, the sheer breadth of events is quite mind-blowing.
We're still building the page - many more Charities are offering Sponsored Events now, so there are a number of items still to be added - but we're linking in from the main site at this stage simply because of the timescale for runners looking for Golden Bond places in the London Marathon. Some Golden Bond places still look to be available but runners will need to scan down the page for offering Charities and contact each individually.
We're also updating Directory entries with direct links to Events pages, so if you don't locate a Golden Bond place via the Events Calendar itself, it's worth trying the main site links available from Directory listings. Click here for the Events Calendar and here for the Directory index.
The Events Calendar also includes details of the 5th BASPCAN congress being held on 20-23 July 2003 in York, on Child Maltreatment.
