Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Each week we will briefly concentrate on learning a different aspect English; for example; nouns, noun phrases, verbs, adjectives and adverbs and how we use them when we write. Come and learn how to recognise these when you read different texts! Over time, we will also look at why some sounds read differently in sentences (soft 'c'; hard 'c'; soft 'g'; silent 'k', 'g', and 'w'; words with 'tch'; 'wh' and 'ph' words; and words ending in 'le'; 'el'; 'al'; and 'il')? When do we add 'ing'; 'ed'; 'er'; 'est' and 'y' to words? How do we use capital letters, commas and apostrophes, questions marks and exclamation marks, as well as suffixes and prefixes? There's so much to learn and you'll learn it by watching, reading, writing and practicing using worksheets. Come and find out the answers to all these questions! We will be reading some amazing short stories and look at how they have been written, the language the author has used, and the pictures the story paints in our heads. We will also look at personification and how you can make an inanimate object come to life! 
I have more years of experience than I care to think about (!) in delivering English to children from primary age, right through to young adults. I have taught many young adults who failed to pass their English GCSE in school to gain the almost equivalent Functional Skills English qualification after they have left school. 

This is a topic I am extremely passionate about - literacy skills are a vital necessity in life. If a person can read, they can learn. If they can read, they can write. If they know the rules for grammar and punctuation, they can write well! 

Outside of Outschool, I also work as a proofreader for students at two local universities and as an editor for authors of both fiction and non-fiction books. I am also a published author. 
Your child may be asked to finish their worksheets/paragraphs/short stories/plans that they began in class. I may also ask that their work is uploaded to the classroom for me to check their understanding.
Students will need a pencil, an eraser, and lined paper to write on as well as printed copies of the handouts I provide in class.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
All resources will be provided by me. Worksheets will need to be printed off for the children to complete during the lesson and for homework.
