How daily Kumon study stopped siblings from being held back a year at school

Hanad has developed a love of reading and now wants to go to libraries and read independently

Hanad and Adey Omar joined the Kumon Small Heath Study Centre in June 2013. Hanad and Adey’s mum enrolled them on both the Kumon Maths and English Programmes because she had become very concerned they were not making the expected progress at school.

Their school had made the decision that both siblings would be held back a year in an attempt to help them catch up with their peer groups; Adey finished the last school year before the summer in Reception and Hanad in Year 1, with the expectation that they would remain in these year groups in September.

Following a daily commitment to the Kumon programmes over the summer months, and a focus on building a foundation of strong study skills, Adey and Hanads’ mum, Amina, was very happy to report that both of her children have now joined their respective year groups following school assessments at the start of the new school term.

Kumon study has helped both Hanad and Adey to increase their attention span

Saika Ismail, Adey and Hanads’ Kumon Instructor, was delighted for both of her committed students. She says: “Kumon study has helped both children to increase their attention span and improve their ability in maths and English.

“Through studying the Kumon English Programme, Hanad has developed a love of reading and now wants to go to libraries and read independently. I am very pleased with the outcome of their Kumon study so far and hope they go from strength to strength as their Kumon journeys continue.”

Saika has reassessed the targets set for both children and has now extended them to account for the children’s increased confidence and attainment. Keep up the great work Hanad and Adey!
