After school and community learning changes lives everyday

 
             
 

When children enjoy writing or doing maths, they actually grow in confidence and enjoy learning more. They excel in spelling and grammar and expand their vocabulary. They feel comfortable thinking and talking about maths.

 
 

It is good fun for young writers to tell their stories using legos or modelling clay at first. We call it "Playful Story Writing". You can find more information here about Cambridge University research. The process helps improve literacy and helps students in their exams.

 

 
 

Students can take care of spelling and grammar more easily after they finish writing their stories - not before! This way they don't have to begin writing with the worry that they may fail in their writing skills.

  Did you know that talking about maths problems is beneficial for students learning maths? The process improves reasoning skills and helps them understand why a solution works, rather than memorising and rote learning.
