Years 3 and 4

Playful Learning

Suitable for children aged five to eight.

At Flying Start Tuition, we understand the benefits of a playful approach to learning.  Children learn so many skills from playing games and interacting face-to face with others.  They learn to listen, to share, to take turns to collaborate and to problem solve.  At the same time games are an effective way of building core maths and English skills – while having fun!

Playful Learning sessions take place at our main tuition centre in Chesham.
