What is a Grow Learning Group?
Grow learning groups are English and maths tuition sessions that last 80 minutes, because we think that’s just enough time to get lots of learning done before your brain starts to tire out. There are never more than four children in one group, and we make sure we carefully place children in groups that will enhance their learning process.
Our little classroom is filled with a variety of equipment that can make learning more engaging. We like to use concrete objects, pictures, moving images and a host of other things to help children learn in a fun and effective way.
English Grow Learning Group
English grammar can be really tricky, so we make sure we cover the really complex concepts in an easy to understand way. Our English tuition will encourage children to use what they know about grammar, punctuation and spelling in their ‘real’ writing to improve their overall writing attainment. We also have lots of ways to support children who find spelling particularly difficult.
Reading is another important aspect of the English curriculum. we can work on developing phonics and de-coding skills with younger pupils. Children also need to be able to comprehend texts in order to answer questions on them, so we work on inference and deduction skills that help children understand and analyse a range of literary genres.
We also think that it’s important to really enjoy reading so we encourage children to read for pleasure. Every child will have free access to our library where they can find books that excite, engage and inspire.
Maths Grow Learning Group
Maths is a really exciting subject. There are opportunities to learn about maths all around us. Our maths tuition follows the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract approach which is based on evidence that children only understand the complex concepts of mathematics by understanding them in their ‘concrete’ or ‘real’ form first. Quick mental recall is also very important, so we look for ways to help children retain those tricky tables that will suit their learning style.
Our teachers are skilled at helping children remember all the calculations they need to know throughout Keys Stages 1 to 3, whilst making the process fun and engaging. Boring maths is banned.
