Private English Tuition Key Stage 2 Brentwood
We are located in Pilgrims Hatch, Brentwood, Essex and perfectly situated for anyone in the Ongar, Brentwood, or Shenfield areas. Our classes are all kept to a maximum of 3 students so that individual attention is always guaranteed.
We will help your child develop their reading skills by encouraging them to read a variety of books and offer advice as to what books to read at home.
We will examine texts from a number of sources taken from fiction, non-fiction and poetry and look at structure, language and character. We will also help the student develop inference skills and aid them as to the best ways to answer questions. This will also prepare them for Key Stage 2 SATS and will provide a foundation for Key Stage 3.
Creative & Informative Writing
Writing skills are developed by encouraging children to write using resources from books, the internet, the surroundings as well as the students’ own interests to inspire and motivate a personal response. Week by week the foundation will be built on and the children will gradually increase in confidence and enthusiasm as they find they can produce well written, imaginative and structured work. Written tasks will include creative writing, different formal styles and poetry and will prepare them well for assessment tests, including SATS.
Grammar & Punctuation
Sentence structure and punctuation forms part of the writing programme and will be taught through the writing itself as well as through specific worksheets and interactive games. This will include simple, compound and complex sentences, connectives and parts of speech.
A specific programme is followed to help children learn to spell using phonics, decoding, and spelling patterns. This will cover National Curriculum Key stage lists, phonics, including frequency and difficult words.
For older children an analysis is made of each child’s individual needs and a programme followed to allow students to catch up with their peers by developing phonics, vocabulary and comprehension skills. The course also engages students in a variety of fiction, non-fiction and poetry to inspire them to read and develop a love of books.
