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 too.

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

In-class clubs are held at the Literacy Club classroom, B13 0BT following our Covid risk assessment policy.


Holiday Test Practice Clubs

These sessions are 2 hours and 50 minutes long . 

In the Grammar Prep Holiday clubs, will cover timed comprehension, vocabulary and cloze test practice with instant feedback, interspersed with board, card and interactive games (where we are in person), based on vocabulary-building and cloze skills. 

Independent Prep Clubs focus on longer comprehension and writing skills. 

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

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

Each numbered club has a completely different syllabus. 

For Year 6 clubs please see here

Full tabled assessment feedback is given after all clubs by email.

Each club has different sessions (A, B, C etc) to choose, to ensure that clubs stay small and children receive individual attention.
