We have been crafting in Art! our students in class 6-7 have been crafting using paper and card as the primary artistic medium for the creation of one, two or three-dimensional objects. Paper craft lend themselves to a wide range of techniques and can be folded, curved, bent, cut, glued, molded, stitched, or layered. Paper is readily available and easier to work with than the more complicated media typically used in the creation of three-dimensional artwork, such as ceramics or wood. It is also neater to work with than paints, dyes, and other coloring materials. Paper crafts may also be used in theraputic settings, providing children with a safe and uncomplicated creative outlet to express feelings. The children throuroughly enjoyed their crafting session and were able to take home a proud peice of paper craft with the 5 pillars of Islam!

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.
We are pleased to announce that the Tuition Club will open onsite on Wednesday 2nd September 2020. Doors will open from 9:45am, We look forward to seeing you!

COVID-19 and Tuition Club onsite closure
Currently Tuition Club takes place on site – but in line with the latest developments and government guidance, it may become difficult to sustain classes on site. However, in order for our children not to miss out or fall behind, then we are already making preparations for all our children to learn in our Virtual Classrooms online temporarily from Monday 23rd March 2020. As mentioned previously we do not wish our children to miss out on their tuition and work, nor fall behind the standards set at the centre. By the grace of Allah, we have over 3 years of experience teaching online; and have tailored resources that work in tandem with the resource on site. For the past 18 months we have held online classes for groups of children from all around the country and world and many of our onsite staff already teach in our virtual classrooms.
We will begin adding children over the next few days into our online classrooms via Skype – a video communications program everyone is familiar with, but which is a powerful tool allowing us to deliver a great experience to the class. Please note you may receive calls from our admin staff during this process.
We will be forwarding technical information, how to setup and take part in the classes. The children will also receive their full week’s timetables moving forward inshaaAllah.
If you have not already joined, then you should subscribe to one of our social media channels – Telegram, Twitter or by email on our Website.
May Allah keep us all well and safe; and upon Him is our reliance and final return.

Our home-schooled girls aged 13-14 have been ‘Raising- Standards’ in their science experiments! The group enjoyed a fun session at the Tuiton club making Pancakes. Ever wondered what does science have to do with pancakes?.. well, when you make pancake batter you are mixing a whole range of different chemicals – so all sorts of reactions take place in the cooking! The dry ingredients contain flour and sugar, as well as salt and maybe either baking powder or baking soda. Flour supplies protein, molecules made of lots of amino-acids joined in chains, along with starch, which similarly is made of lots of simple sugar molecules joined in chains.
Our home- schooled children ages 6-7 have been working at greater depth in their reading and writing!.Working at greater depth means a child is not only on their way to master the expected stage for their age, but able to delve into it in more detail. In English, working at greater depth might look like using different sentence types and lengths, being aware of how their audience affects their tone and style, or writing with a ‘reader’s eye’, re-reading and editing their own work to ensure it’s enjoyable to read.
As you may remember, last year our little green-fingered students were learning all about planting in our Learning Garden at the Tuition club. As spring approches us, our children are excited to have discovered their little seeds grow into beautiful organic produce!. Children can learn new skills, have fun, play and develop self-confidence by spending time in the garden tending plants and growing their own food. Most children enjoy being outdoors and love digging in the soil, getting dirty, creating things and watching plants grow. People of all ages can enjoy gardening, but our children in particular have had lots of fun and gaining special benefits. Gardening is educational and develops new skills including:
- Responsibility – from caring for plants
- Understanding – as they learn about cause and effect (for example, plants die without water, weeds compete with plants)
- Self-confidence – from achieving their goals and enjoying the food they have grown
- Love of nature – a chance to learn about the outdoor environment in a safe and pleasant place
- Reasoning and discovery – learning about the science of plants, animals, weather, the environment, nutrition and simple construction
- Physical activity – doing something fun and productive
- Cooperation – including shared play activity and teamwork
- Creativity – finding new and exciting ways to grow food
- Nutrition – learning about where fresh food comes from
We look forward to sharing what our children find under the soil and what they will be cooking with their fresh produce… watch this space!
Descriptive writing imprints images into the reader’s mind, making you feel as though you’re “right there.” It‘s all about engaging the five senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch to transport the reader and stir emotion. By choosing vivid details and colorful words, good writers bring objects, people, places, and events to life. Instead of merely telling you what they see, they use their words to show you.
Our home schooled children in year 3 and 4 have been learning all about fossilization during their science lesson. The children have learnt that fossils are the preserved remains or traces of living things from the past. There are many ways to form fossils. The experiment conducted by the children modelled the casting and moulding method. The dent made by the object, in this case were mini- dinosaur figurines in the clay is the mould. It shows the detail of the object’s surface. Groundwater leaks in to the moulds and then evaporates, leaving minerals behind. The minerals dry up and harden and this creates a cast. The children went on to pour pva glue into the moulds and baked in the oven to harden up to reveal their very own fossils!
