Why Maths and English Camps?

Why Maths and English Camps?

Those long summer holidays are a chance for children to have fun and recharge after a busy academic year. However, research has found that pupils can lose up to two months of learning by the time they return to school in September (TES, 2019). The good news is that as little as two hours a week of active learning can help to retain this knowledge and that is where we come in!

We offer sessions, for children aged 6 – 11, to help them avoid this learning loss. Each session will focus on maths or English, and will address the key skills that children need as they prepare for the year ahead. Tutoring in small groups also allows a more flexible approach to learning, meaning our teachers can be responsive to the needs of the children they are working with quickly to address misconceptions and develop a deeper understanding.

Lesson Structure

Each lesson will start with an introductory game or task, which will help the child to recall prior knowledge. The lesson will then start by introducing the topic for day, with a short assessment of each child. The activity they are given next will either recap, reinforce or challenge their skills, and children will bring home the work they have completed that day.

Lessons on offer

Lessons are offered in both maths and English for the following year groups:

  • Year 2 – preparation for Year 3
  • Year 3 – preparation for Year 4
  • Year 4 – preparation for Year 5
  • Year 6 – preparation for Year 6
  • Year 6 – preparation for secondary school

Timings of sessions

Sessions are offered each day at the following times:

  • English: 9.30 – 10.30am
  • Maths: 11 – 12pm
  • English: 1 – 2pm
  • Maths: 2.30 – 3.30pm

Children will be in small groups of up to 8 with others of a similar age. We believe that small groups encourage collaborative learning (Pearson, 2020) and also gives children the opportunity to support and encourage each other in their learning journey, whilst developing those all-important social skills. Feedback will be provided after each session to allow you to keep track of your child’s learning and progress.
