Review: Thomas & Friends: Tale of the Brave (DVD) (at Drayton Manor Park)

Tale of the Brave is the latest Thomas & Friends film, and we were lucky enough to be invited to go along to Drayton Manor, home of Thomas Land, to watch the new film in the cinema there.

The Alphablocks are fun & colourful characters who have all sorts of adventures. There is a different character for each letter, and the letters team up to spell out the words, which then magically come to life.… Continue Reading “Review: Learn to read with the Alphablocks – Phonics First Steps, Volume 1 (DVD)”
