WHY SEIZE THE SUMMER?

At Explore Learning we believe that progress shouldn’t stop at the end of term and crucially, research shows it shouldn’t either! 74% of parents say their children’s academic abilities slip over the summer, so we’re here to not only combat the ‘summer slide’, but to help children seize the summer.

The brain is a muscle; the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets! That’s why our award-winning maths and English tuition has a proven track record of delivering academic and social progress all year round.

 Weekly fun activities

 Great tips and advice

 Celebrating summer success

KEEP THOSE BRAINS ACTIVE!

This summer, we’ve created an ‘alternative book club’ to help you SEIZE THE SUMMER!

Each week we will be releasing an activity right here for you to download and complete – any of the books you have been reading will help you to finish off the activity!

If you’re reading this, you get to take part in our exciting Seize the Summer project – and our members will a receive a little Seize the Summer card with six circles on it!

So what’s next?

  • Check out this page each week to download the weekly activity.
  • Get stuck in and complete the fun Seize the Summer activity – remember that using any books you have been reading will be a big help!
  • If you’re a member, take your completed activity into your centre and show a manager – get one of the circles on your Seize the Summer card signed for each activity you hand in!
  • Get all SIX circles signed and earn yourself a never before seen, limited edition 2017 Lizard Card!
