With Ramadan approaching, I wanted to share the stills from our annual planner showing our updated dates of operation over the next couple of months.
Green days are tuition sessions and yellow represents mock exams.

During Ramadan, we will open on Saturdays and Sundays as we normally do with opening times as follows:

Saturday 10am to 5:30pm
Sunday 10am to 4pm

Our parents will have received information via WhatsApp guiding them to their child's new day/time.
Please get in touch with Briony with any issues or alterations to the times as they need to be corrected before the sessions start.

The Mock Exam revision list will be live on our website this week and the information will be sent home via WhatsApp for all parents.

Thanks!

Our year 6, SATs exam preparation plan. Our year 6 students will spend the next 4.5 months working through exam-style practice to solidify their knowledge and prepare them for their in-school exams.
•••
Students will begin with 1 booklet per week to focus on either Maths or English. This will alternate until after the February half term when they will move to 2 booklets per week to ensure they have been exposed to as many possible questions as possible.
•••
SATs exams are designed to assess students at the end of their primary school journey. The scores they receive in these tests will be passed on to the secondary school they receive a place at and place them into sets. It’s important for students to do well so that they can be placed correctly for their secondary school journey.

Our Year 4 11+ students were looking at some rhymes in their booklets and we found this on the board at the end of the session.

"This is tuition
We're here to learn
Take new paths
on our own terms"

It beautifully sums up our ethos and our goals with the students. We work to their needs and pace to ensure we have a happy and productive working environment.

Did you know that some students will get to year 10 before sitting any kind of formal assessment? This makes the experience all the more disconcerting for them.

We like to make sure that students from year 1 to year 13 have a sense of exam conditions and don't feel quite so overwhelmed when they come to sit their real exams.

The students are gaining valuable experience and we are able to complete important progress checks for all students.

Here's a taste of what happens while our students are sitting exams.

It may be the weekend but for us, that means Mock Exams.

All of our students will sit a series of assessments before the Christmas break.

Here's a few short clips showing what happens once the papers have been completed by the students.
Today, we've got Avais and Beenash working hard to mark AND moderate around 100 exam papers so that our students can have their papers back in the final week of tuition.

Question: What is the difference between the present perfect and the simple past?

Answer:
Use the simple past when the action started in the past, finished in the past, and is not continuing now. Use the present perfect when the action started in the past and is continuing now.

The simple past tells us that an action happened at a certain time in the past, and is not continuing anymore. It doesn't tell us anything about when an action happened, so more information needs to be given with this verb form, such as when the action took place.

The present perfect tells us that an action started in the past and it is still happening now, or it is something that happens regularly. We may need more information to tell us how long it has been going on. It may also tell us that the time period it started in is still going on.

The following example sentences show the different meanings when using the two verb tenses.

Akbar ate lunch early. (Simple Past: Eating lunch has started and ended in the past. Someone might say this when the time for eating lunch has also ended. Lunch happened early, and it is over now.)
Akbar has eaten lunch. (Present Perfect: Akbar started and finished eating lunch in the past, but lunch time is still going on. Someone might say this when others are preparing to eat lunch, and they want to know whether Akbar will join them.)

We have been working on our displays in the centre and we started with Maths!

This wall is now filled with formulae, mathematical rules and key vocabulary to help the students to understand their work and have reference points to help them where they are struggling.

Students will be learning passively with this display as well as actively with their tutors.

The English and Science displays are on the way too!
