SPECIFIC COURSES
Mathematics MATHEMATICS

We are skilled in assisting with the requirements of the National Curriculum in Key Stages 1, 2 and 3, GCSE and A level. Using suitable resources we can support and develop all areas of  Numeracy and Mathematical concepts and develop your child’s confidence in this subject.

English ENGLISH

Whether your child requires support in the fundamental structures of Literacy and Reading, specialist Language support or assistance with creative ideas, we can assist. We are experienced in teaching children in Key Stages 1,2, and 3 and beyond in all aspects of the Literacy curriculum.

Tailor-Made Courses YEAR 3 AND YEAR 4 TAILOR-MADE COURSES

It is vital that key skills are established in both literacy and numeracy by the end of year 4. With this in mind we have developed a course designed to last one term to cover the major areas:
• Specific course for each year group
• Children taught in small groups according to needs
• Aims to compliment and supplement learning at school
Course content will cover presentation, punctuation, key spelling confusions, learning to paraphrase, times tables tricks and division facts, time (how to add time), read timetables, shape names/definitions and lots more!

 

Handwriting Course HANDWRITING COURSE

We have a specialist handwriting teacher on our team who has extensive experience in helping children improve their handwriting - this includes left-handers, children with poor fine motor skills and those who are dyspraxic as well as children who need general help in developing style and neatness of handwriting. She runs small groups for children in Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 and the aim of the course is to help them develop a neat, legible hand in the style of their school. This course has proved so successful that we now have a dedicated Handwriting Centre operating most afternoons. More info ->
