Reading Difficulty and How to Fix it

As a parent we watch our children learn so much even before they start school and we support them at every step. But when school starts, and they begin formal learning, important things like reading and writing always come more naturally to some children than others.

Gladstone Pottery Museum Review

When we went on holiday to Staffordshire one thing we wanted to do was learn more about the pottery industry which was – and still is – huge in the area.

So we chose one of the less well…

Wellington Country Park Review

Wellington Country Park near Reading in Berkshire isn’t too far from us and we have been a few times since the children were toddlers. We went for LP’s third birthday and again for Halloween around eighteen months ago.
