The stories you read to your child are their first introduction to the world of books and can demonstrate how fun reading can be. Taking the time to sit with your child and delve into a book is not only a brillant way to bond and share enjoyment of an activity together, but is also a great way to encourage the habit of reading.

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s The Gruffalo, is one of 50 fun, colourful book titles featured on the Read Together section of Kumon’s Recommended Reading List. This section is for children who haven’t started reading independently yet, with books particularly suited to being read aloud.

The Gruffalo is amongst the favourite books of 3½ -year-old Kumon student, Ayden. It tells the story of a mouse who takes a stroll through the deep, dark, woods. On his journey, he encounters several dangerous animals but uses his cunning to escape potential trouble, eventually meeting the Gruffalo himself! [ Click here for full story ]

GCSE exam results 2017

Yesterday pupils across England, Wales and Northern Ireland received their GCSE results in what was of course the first year of the new ‘tougher’ exams.

Yesterday pupils across England, Wales and Northern Ireland received their GCSE results in what was of course the first year of the new ‘tougher’ exams.

There has been a lot of discussion about the new exams and in particular how they are graded. This year for the first time the old familiar system of A* to G has for English literature, English language and maths been replaced by a number score of 1 – 9 with 9 being the highest. Other subjects will adopt this grading system in 2018.

With the new system, what was a C grade equates approximately to a new level 4 with an 8 being roughly what an A* used to be. The new top grade of 9 has been designed to improve differentiation amongst the most able pupils and over time stretch the achievement upwards for all children to help them reach their potential.
