Posted Posted in Blog

Someone recently asked me about age groups. They wanted to support their child with Tutor In A Box but weren’t sure which one to order. This got me thinking… and since ages and year groups can be a little confusing, I thought I’d dedicate this next blog to it! For the majority of the UK, […]

Summer Learning Loss

Summer is a long time. (Unless you ask a teacher or a child, in which case they’ll probably say it’s too short)! Six whole weeks of freedom from school; with no daily routine for a lot of people and no formal education! It can be a time for children to do more of what they […]
