We offer three streams of english group lessons: Core English, Novel Study and Homework Centre.

Core English Group Lessons

The Core English program builds a strong foundation in English language skills, including verbal expression as well as reading and writing skills. During each session students will work on developing their phonetic awareness, reading comprehension, writing, spelling, and knowledge of grammar and punctuation. Each student will work through materials suited to their attainment level, with the assistance of a specially trained teacher.

All material is differentiated to ensure that scaffolding is in place for students who need extra support and that extension and enrichment activities are available to challenge higher achieving students. We are able to accommodate children with additional learning needs.

1.5-hour sessions run every week on a termly basis; the maximum class size is 6 students per teacher. We advise that children attend two group lessons per week for optimal benefit.

The Novel Study for ‘Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing’ by Judy Blume, is scheduled for Winter Term 2019, Mondays: 5:00-6:30pm.

Homework Centre

The Homework Centre program offers a supportive environment in which students are provided with individualized assistance across the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) in a small group setting. Students are encouraged to bring in their math and science homework and school textbooks; our skilled and knowledgeable teachers will provide clarification and additional practice with mathematical and scientific concepts and methods that are being covered at school.
This program will also focus on improving study skills and developing good independent learning habits, to set students up for success in their studies even beyond Grade 12.
Each session lasts 1 hour and runs every week of the school term.
