Summer holidays

It’s important for children to rest and recharge over the summer holidays. But whether you’re taking a trip or staying home, there are lots of ways you can encourage your child to practise their reading, writing and communication skills over the long break. This will help children boost their literacy skills over the holidays, and prevent the learning loss that can happen when they’re not at school.
