CHILDREN who have been working on their maths and English skills outside of school have been rewarded with achievement certificates.
Members of the Stamford Kumon Centre have been attending weekly sessions at Trinity Methodist Church in Barn Hill to improve their skills with personalised workloads to suit their individual age and ability.
Special awards were presented to some of the group for outstanding achievement.
Stephen Husbands and Oliver Pickwell got certificates for reaching level G in the course before moving into Year 6 at school while Toby Scarborough and Georgia Gunn received awards for exceptional progress in maths and English.
Kumon instructor Pauline Jones said: “The children have all worked very hard and made exceptional progress.”
Throughout the course the children, aged between three and 16, have also been helping others by supporting the Book Bridge scheme to provide children’s books and educational resources for young people in Mongolia and Cambodia.
