In our tutoring sessions we develop skills and confidence in reading, writing and maths through the use of games, creative learning and fun resources. We encourage you to be involved in the teaching and learning process wherever possible, so that you feel confident in supporting your child as he or she learns. :: Literacy :: We believe that securing phonetic knowledge is of the utmost importance in literacy; therefore we use phonics as the cornerstone of our literacy teaching, both in reading and writing. Foundation and Key Stage 1 § Learning / securing letter sounds and names § De-coding words § Blending and segmenting § Developing strategies to learn ‘tricky’ high-frequency words Key Stage 2 § Grammar, spelling and punctuation (GPS) § Prefixes and suffixes § Root verbs § Latin derivatives § Technical, grammatical knowledge needed for Year 6 SATs :: Maths (Key Stage 1 and 2) :: Maths tuition will be personalised according to the needs of your child. We can focus on a specific area (such as place value, shape, space and measure and calculations) or take a more global approach providing your child with the tools necessary to begin the next academic year with confidence.
