Practice clubs run in school holiday time for children in Year 5 only.

They allow children to gain more confidence in specific areas and practice working under test conditions.

Priority is given to current pupils, but spaces are occasionally available for other Year 5 children (subject to assessment) too.

Children should bring their stationery, vocabulary record book, and a drink and snack for break-time.

Holiday Test Practice Clubs

These sessions are 2 hours and 50 minutes long . 

We will cover timed comprehension, vocabulary and cloze test practice with instant feedback, interspersed with  board, card and interactive games, based on vocabulary-building and cloze skills. 

The format of the clubs is quite different from the mainly teaching-based Literacy Club, and allows me to cover further test practice and techniques which I would not otherwise have time for in the standard classes. 

Parents are emailed their child's results in all test practice areas on an anonymous comparison chart, within two days of the holiday club.

Because the activities are so varied, children tend to manage the longer session very well. 

There will also be a 15 minute break - children must bring a snack and drink and will have the opportunity, in dry weather, to play outdoors - please ensure that they have sensible shoes for this.

The clubs are held at My Learning Club classroom in Moseley.


Summer Clubs

There are 12 separate holiday clubs (Clubs 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14) to be held during the summer holidays. 

Scroll down for further additional Independent Prep and Revision Support clubs over summer.

Each club has a completely different syllabus.

As the test practice activities and reviews are so varied, children tend to manage and enjoy the longer enrichment sessions of 2 hours 50 minutes. 

We have a 15 minute break during the lesson. 

Each club has different sessions (A, B and C, D, E)  to ensure that all clubs stay small and children can receive individual attention.

Please note this important information before booking:

I will teach all Holiday Clubs in blue. These clubs have a maximum of 10 pupils. 
The fee is £25 for a class of almost 3 hours. 
Holiday Clubs in green are run by associate Literacy Club tutor, Sulayman, and follow exactly the same format, papers and teaching as the other clubs. They have 6-7 pupils per club. 
The Green Club fees are reduced at £18 for a class of almost 3 hours.

For pupils attending Maths/NVR courses with Mr Rashid, please note:
He will be running mock exam practice sessions every Monday and Wednesday for his pupils, 
with a choice of session from 9.00am - 12.00pm or 1.00pm - 4.00pm. 
Please choose your Literacy Holiday Clubs around these times.
The days have been matched to allow pupils time for play and relaxation on other days of the week. 


Independent Prep Holiday Clubs

These clubs are very similar to standard holiday clubs, but all the material has been prepared to practice the question types (Comprehension and Writing) given in the Independent School (KES/KEHS) exams in more depth.  


Problem Solving Clubs

 We will be using a wide variety of good quality problem solving card and board games and puzzles to help the children visualise what would normally be printed on paper in an exam. 

The club has run for many years previously and has proved to be fun as well as educational for the children; allowing them to feel more confident with NVR/Problem solving in general. 

This club is limited to a maximum of 10 children only. The fee is £12 for each session.

Additional Revision Clubs

These clubs are for children performing in the lower third of the cohort at Literacy Club; they are designed to allow children an additional opportunity to complete and review past work covered at previous Holiday Clubs and in class, to build practice, understanding and confidence. 

I teach these myself; the fee is £25/club
