Text Features and Visual Information
Students in year 4 have been learning about Text Features during their English lessons this week! The children took part in a fun challenge where they made their own posters using the text features that they have learned about. Text features include all the components of a story or article that are not the main body of text. These include the table of contents, index, glossary, headings, bold words, sidebars, pictures and captions, and labeled diagrams. Readers of all ages, especially struggling readers tend to skip over many of the text features provided within a text. To help readers understand their importance, the tutor asked the students take some time before reading to look through the photographs/illustrations, charts, graphs, or maps and talk about what they noticed. They then went on to make some predictions about what they’ll learn and started a list of questions they have based off of the text features which then were put together on posters!
Here at the Tuition Club we teach our students more than just the basics of biology, physics and chemistry! We teach them skills that are important in every aspect of our lives, whether it is how to make observations, collecting information or using logical thinking to draw conclusions. Students are able to work in teams and participate in fun experiments and activities, such as baking cakes in order to understand the concept of irreversible reactions.
Maths is one of the most important subjects in a child’s development. Basic mathematics skills are needed in everyday life, and here at the Tuition Club we make sure that our students succeed in gaining those vital skills. We not only cover the National Curriculum, but we also integrate problem solving and mental maths activities into our lessons; enabling students to develop their skills whilst also having fun. Excellent knowledge of maths will open many avenues for children, so come and find out how we can support your child in this important subject!
Here at the Tuition Club our students will explore the past history of Britain, as well as the past history of the wider world. From learning about significant events such as the Great Fire of London, to learning about the Roman Empire, early Islamic civilization and much more; we want to inspire children to want to learn more about the past. Our aim is for students to develop their understanding of the world around them, as well as learn important historical concepts, abstract terms and gain an understanding of historical enquiry methods.
During our geography lessons, we aim to inspire within our students a fascination and interest in the world and its people. Students will develop an understanding of key human and physical processes, as their knowledge of the world grows throughout their studies. Not only will our students be taught in a classroom, but they will also have the opportunity to participate in some exciting fieldwork!
Here at the Tuition Club we understand the importance the subject of English has, in enabling children to communicate effectively through speaking and writing fluently. By covering the national curriculum our teachers aim to support our students in developing their language skills through creative writing, reading and speaking. The lessons are interactive, and many exciting activities are in the process of being planned such as a trip to the local library.
What is computing? Is it knowing just how to switch a computer on? Send an Email and browse the web? We believe computing can be that much more for our kids. Computing can be creative and fun! Imagine if they were able to actually build that computer that they switch on? Or perhaps program it, and install software properly. Instead of just surfing the web, how about design the actual webpages themselves. Our computing tuition is designed to instil that creative and exploratory mindset, to help our students turn it from a dull subject in to a fun and rewarding past time and more!
Arabic is a wonderful language, spoken by millions of people around the world.
Our comprehensive program is designed to tutor the children and help them learn the language more fluently. We also aimt o take them up to GCSE level and beyond, so they can read, speak and write this beautiful and poetic language.
Nurture your child’s creative side by enrolling them for an art lesson at the Tuition Club. Let them explore ways to draw, paint and build the things around them. We currently can offer them painting, drawing, skill co-ordination and creative thinking. Soon we will offer pottery and 3D art… all whilst letting them enjoy themselves and have fun!
At The Tuition Club we provide our students with the opportunity to participate in Physical Education and we believe it to be essential to help with the development of motor skills and the enhancement of reflexes.
The lessons will not only get the students fit and healthy but will be full of fun activities for them all to enjoy. We often take students to the British Wrestling Academy to make use of the space and equipment.
