"The key to Busy Things is that the children love it, the characters, sounds, humour etc that make the learning fun and engaging. The flexibility of the activities is really useful. I can use an autumn term phonics activity, then use the same activity but more advanced for the summer term."
Rebecca Johnson, Fernvale Primary School
