The new phonics-based app, designed to teach children to read through play

With September now upon us, both parents and teachers alike are on the lookout for new and innovative learning tools. Once which has recently caught our eye, and is designed to help children learn to read in a fun and engaging way, is Norwegian app, Poio. As such, QA Education is giving away an access code (worth £18.99) and the accompanying physical storybook to one lucky winner!

When I was 11 years old I knew that I wanted to be a primary school teacher. It wasn’t just the influence of having parents as teachers (they didn’t put me off!) I just knew that I liked doing pretty much everything. I loved learning and I loved the day-to-day variety of being busy doing different things at school.

Opting to install a canopy in a school would bring with it a number of benefits. The children would be able to play and learn outside in an environment that would not be affected by the wind or the rain.  This makes it possible to spend time outdoors all year round but it also means that the children are protected from the sun during the summer as it blocks up to 99% of harmful UV rays.

From a safety perspective, the children will know that they have to remain within the canopy and this makes life easier for teachers.
