Maths course information

The Key Stage 2 Maths course starts of by covering the basic topics in the Number section, from fraction and rounding to place value. In addition, we will cover Shape (Geometry) which includes Angles, Metric units, scales, translations and co-ordinates. Furthermore, a large majority of the time will be spent focusing on revision for the end of year 6 SATS examinations. The revision classes involve going over content already learnt but at a faster pace to help students revise all the required topics and ensuring nothing is forgotten from when the content was covered earlier in the year.

 

As we approach February we start to practice exam papers and exam questions, we have a large library of past papers and questions to choose from and we tailor each exam paper for the students so as to align with the topics covered in the classes. Extra homework is also available should the students desire. As students can struggle with the English used in the Maths papers, we help to break down the language used and help students concentrate on the Maths behind it allowing the students to feel both comfortable and prepared for when the exams come around in May.

 

 English course information

The Key Stage 2 English course focuses on a different aspect of English each week, ranging from speaking, writing and presenting to debating and grammar/comprehension. Each individual lesson starts with a spelling activity and a comprehension based around a little reading. We tend to find in schools the majority of students are unwilling to read aloud or answer questions, therefore we actively encourage our students to be more vocal and voice their opinions in our classes. This helps to build self-confidence and may previous students have remarked about how much more confident they are in terms of being more vocal in the classroom, positively affecting their grades at school. As the end of the school year gathers closer, we start to focus on past papers and previous exam questions which will best suit the students in terms of their revision for the end of year SATS exam.

 

Group sessions

The lessons will work to a fast pace to ensure the content covered is relevant and required, however, there is plenty of opportunities for the students to ask questions an clear up any issues they may have with the work. This is due to the fact Direct Tuition try to keep classes to a maximum of eight students per class, to allow the easiest learning environment for the students, allowing them to achieve greater results. 

 

Resources

Homework will be given at the end of every session simply to make sure that the students have understood the work that we have gone through. Furthermore, it best allows us to gauge an understanding as to where the students are at, and so allows us to highlight any strong or weak areas for improvement.

 

 Equipment

Students should bring with them a workbook, pen and pencil. This gives the children the best possible chance to write down any notes and complete any questions that are set throughout the lesson, this can help to affirm their knowledge and also is always there for when revisiting during exam time.
