Description

Class Experience

Each week we will briefly concentrate on learning a different aspect of how English sentences are constructed. 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 start to look at personification and how the author has given life to inanimate objects! 
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 like to finish their paragraphs/short stories that they began in class if they don't finish in time. I am always happy to read them after class finishes if you would like to upload them to me.
Students will need a pencil, an eraser, and lined paper to write on. You may like to purchase a workbook for them. Workbooks can be purchased here (but you may also be able to purchase them elsewhere): https://www.amazon.co.uk/RHINO-200x165-Page-Exercise-Book/dp/B00JHDP9KC/ (UK)
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.

About Me

Hi! 

Welcome to my profile and thank you for visiting!

*Note* I am on vacation from Monday 11th April to Friday 22nd April, inclusive.

I've worked in primary education for more years than I care to think about. Yes, I'm probably somewhat older...
