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, Brook Lane, B13.

Christmas Clubs

There are 2 separate holiday clubs (Clubs 1 and 2) to be held during the Christmas holidays. 

Each club has a completely different syllabus. Full tabled assessment feedback is given after the club.

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, C and D)  to ensure that all clubs stay small and children can receive individual attention.

Please note this important information before booking:
