Holiday Test Practice Clubs

These 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 mask, sanitiser, stationery, vocabulary record book, and a drink and snack for break-time which is taken outdoors/at the park.

 All Clubs are at The Literacy Club, 451 Brook Lane, B13 0BT, unless stated otherwise. 

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. 

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.

Traditional (GL) Verbal Reasoning workshops 

The VR workshops are available for boys preparing for the KES examination (this paper does not feature in the grammar school exams, KEHS for girls or in the Solihull/Warwick exam).

Boys must attend all three workshops; they are part of one course.

You can choose to attend morning or an afternoon sessions (3 mornings or 3 afternoons).

Each workshop will have 10- 11 boys maximum.

Places are allocated on a first-booked basis by Setmore (booking link has been emailed).

The VR workshops are online. 

The three workshops will be held on:

1)    1030am - 230pm (Morning club)  or 3.00pm - 7.00pm (Afternoon club) on: Thursday 24 February

2)    1030am - 230pm (Morning club)  or 3.00pm - 7.00pm (Afternoon club) on: Saturday 16 April

3)    1030am - 230pm (Morning club)  or 3.00pm - 7.00pm (Afternoon club) on: Thursday 2 June

Morning Clubs  FULL

Afternoon Clubs FULL

Unlike other Holiday Clubs, these workshops will include a significant amount of teaching rather than testing, will have preliminary homework beforehand, and homework set after each session, which must be completed. 

I have prepared all workshops in depth with Ahsan, and Ahsan will be teaching them. 

The fee for the full course of 3 half-days (12 hours), new workbooks / test papers to be given as part of the course, and homework, is £165.
