This class is designed to support children’s learning across the curriculum with specific thought given to literacy. During these fun and engaging lessons, we will draw upon the story of Matilda to develop KS2 level english abilities including: imaginative writing, making predictions in text, inferring knowledge and comprehension activities. Lessons will also take a cross curricular approach by drawing on activities and knowledge from other areas of learning. Learning objectives: To understand and use verbs, adjectives, similes, superlatives and other features that appear in the text. To understand and identify elements of character development, plot and suspense To develop writing styles and techniques that cover a range of medium including diary entries, newspaper articles and comic strips To develop confidence in sharing ideas and working effectively within a small group To develop a love a fascination for stories and story writing To name the 7 continents To engage in text from around the world To use percentages in real world situations To understand the important role of others in their community What parents have said: Sep 28, 2021 My 8 year old daughter really enjoyed the class. She loves Roald Dahl‘s stories, so she was inspired to chat about her favourite characters in a very friendly atmosphere. During the class they talked about the story-telling elements, characters and my daughter loved the teacher! It was great for her to have an opportunity to communicate with other children from different parts of the world. Now she wants more :) Thank you very much Kayleigh! -Ella V Sep 25, 2021 My son Akash enjoyed this series of classes with Ms Kayleigh Crouch very much. It gave him a lot of added perspective to the book since it was approached from a mixed learning angle. We liked how she used touch-points in the story to discuss geography, maths, language, art, film etc. She made classes fun and also relaxed, so my usually introverted child was encouraged to read, share and participate actively. We also liked the diverse mix of participants, children from different countries - Germany, Australia, Middle East, South Korea and Malaysia (us). It helped Akash see that kids from different places were different but not so different after all, as they enjoyed the same types of books and activities he did too. I would highly recommend these classes and we look forward to joining other classes with Ms. Kayleigh.
