Maintaining, or preferably building, skills over the long summer holiday impacts enormously on a student’s success in the early part of the next academic year.
Fact 2: Children view their summer holidays as a time when they want to have fun!
Fact 3: Parents struggle to balance Facts 1 and 2!
Don't worry though - MagiKats has the solution!
Different each year, the MagiKats Summer programmes offer learning and fun alongside each other. For 2017, they are all about reasoning and applying subject skills.
Primary: A Head Start
Reading fluency and reciting poems - now included in Key Stage 2 English! Our students will be practising both this Summer!
Maths students up to Year 4 will use creative ways to learn all their tables. Year 5 and 6 students – they’ll be laying the ground work for SATS and secondary school.
Top of the priorities - all will be developing their reasoning skills – essential for all ages but especially to anyone sitting tests at 11+.
2017 - The first year of the new, revised GCSE exams - nobody is quite sure what to expect. Things we do know - ‘old school’ techniques such as showing working are now ‘new school’. Focus then is especially on those study skills. With more turmoil to come as more subjects transfer to 9 to 1 grading, MagiKats continuity will be a safe haven amongst the chaos. The summer will be spent making sure those vital skills are as good as they can be.
For our secondary students too – reasoning, reasoning, reasoning – immediately putting them a step ahead.
Don’t forget the Under 6s
With youngsters assessed more and more in the Early Years Stage - it has never been harder to be young! MagiKats students at this age focus on their love for learning with our range of fun activities – challenges for everyone, all summer!
