Creative Writing Workshop
A positive and productive workshop atmosphere for your child to learn, develop and harness creativity effectively to benefit their skill and competence as a writer.
Verbal & Non-Verbal Reasoning Workshop
Many students approach reasoning papers with random guessing on the multiple-choice questions. It may come naturally to some while others need guidance. We strongly believe that children who become familiar with this type of testing will do better on the day of the test. During the workshops, your child will work through each type of reasoning question, which we will discuss together as a group. We will explain the approach required for each question type and give tips that will help your child succeed with the reasoning exams.
Verbal Reasoning: Numerical pattern recognition; identifying verb vs noun forms; code breaking.
Non-Verbal Reasoning: Applying the spatial operations of rotation, reflection & translation; scale and proportion; multi-step operations.
Vocabulary skills: Identifying verbs, adjectives and noun forms, identifying root words, understanding prefixes and suffixes, working with homophones and homonyms.
3D & Spatial reasoning: cubes, nets, fold and punch questions.
Numerical reasoning and maths Workshop
An in-depth workshop for consolidation and building on previous knowledge of different mathematical concepts, closing gaps and working on weaknesses.
Exam Skills Workshop
During these workshops we will carry out timed practice papers, learning a variety of exam techniques along the way. We will focus on time management and how to tackle multiple-choice questions effectively, as well as discussing revision techniques and how to set short term goals. We will identify your child’s learning style to get the best out of their revision, teaching them how to create a study plan, write effective notes and make revision prompts for around the house.
Don’t let your child miss out on the best start to secondary education!
