New after school club at Oatlands Community Centre
Fundamental Learning has launched an after-school club for 5-11 year olds which supports the literacy and numeracy skills taught at primary school in a fun, encouraging environment. The club is led by Mr Straughan, a popular former local primary school teacher and maths lead. The sessions are supported by a teaching assistant – Immy Smith Dunn who works at Rossett Acre Primary School – and both Mr Straughan and Immy place a strong emphasis on developing confidence and resilience in the children.
The club is held every Wednesday afternoon during term time at Oatlands Community Centre. Small group sessions start at 4pm, 5pm and 6pm and last 50 minutes. The club will also run fun, educational workshops during school holidays.
If you’re interested in finding out the areas where your child may need extra support, Mr Straughan holds an initial 50 minute assessment for each child to identify their bespoke needs. He gives feedback about your child’s strengths and weaknesses in both literacy and numeracy skills. There is a cost of £24 for this no obligation initial assessment.
Andy Gardner, director of Fundamental Learning observes, “typically parents tell us that while they are keen to support their child’s learning it can be a struggle to create a stress-free quiet time at home. We aim to make the club a fun and supportive environment in which the children can learn.”
A parent recently commented that, “My youngest, after one session, was telling me the areas she wants to work on rather than being over sensitive when she doesn’t understand a task. My eldest has this week won the maths weekly award in her class for the first time ever.”
Classes for this term start on Wednesday 8th January. To read more about Fundamental Learning and sign up for next term’s classes please click here
