Summer maths and English programmes - New term success starts in the Summer!
The summer “silly season” has already started at school – tests, school trips, sports days. Is it any wonder that by the Autumn term many pupils will need several months to get back to the academic level for maths and English that they had reached at Easter?
THE MAGIKATS SUMMER Maths and English PROGRAMMES - also featuring reasoning!
We don't want to put pressure on kids, but the reality is that the long Summer break can lead to problems when they return to school for the new academic year. The MagiKats Summer Programmes are designed to stimulate and educate but without pressure.
Heading away to find some sun? Going to escape to another continent? That's fine - you can take MagiKats with you! One of the great aspects of the MagiKats Maths and English Summer Programme is that you can do it anywhere - just think how much easier those long journeys could be with something a bit different to keep the kids occupied!
This year, to celebrate the launch of our new Reasoning subject, the Summer Tuition programmes all have a reasoning theme - helping your child develop the X-Factor for when they head back to school.
SUMMER MATHS PROGRAMME: mathematical reasoning
This year, our maths students will work on mathematical reasoning and also work on developing the ability to follow instructions carefully and correctly.
In workshops, this will involve working on investigations, practising logical thinking and learning how to find ‘rules’ and patterns where these exist. These are skills that are now needed in every school year.
SUMMER ENGLISH PROGRAMME: verbal reasoning and writing skills
Our English students will work on verbal reasoning and developing their writing skills, especially when applied to non-fiction.
In workshops, older students will do this through writing for newsletters or newspapers whilst younger students will practise interpretation of events and writing their own text to accompany pictures in books.
