'We loved the mix of theory and practical in this ebook. My son has struggled slightly with grammar, so I appreciated seeing all the elements he should be familiar with clearly listed. We plan on using this throughout the summer hols to solidify what he has learnt in Year 1.' – Charlotte, mum of Theo
