With so many brands in the market , you would probably be spoilt for choice. In the past the problem with choosing a printer were what functions and quality of the print they can provide.

After a quick search, I had managed to find Mid-year assessment set for English and Mathematics. This would be perfect for my Primary school by to attempt during this school holidays. With this complimentary service, you can now save money and time sourcing for assessment books.

Other educational apps worth exploring include onSponge and The World of Wonder. For the younger ones, Crayola and Leap frog apps are great for activities base prints such as colouring.
