Our Groups in Detail

Juniors: 7-11 years (11 year olds are welcome to attend Junior or Senior Groups)

Fun with Language & Number

An accessible and friendly morning of confidence building in English and Maths skills.

The morning starts with a 30 minute gentle introduction with boardgames, cards, or drawing as young people catch up and settle in.  Then the session moves into numeracy skills with game play, fun activities and discussion to build skills and understanding in Maths.

After a break, young people engage in literacy based learning, which is usually based on a specific book – so storytelling plays a big part.  A wide range of English skills are covered in a fun and accessible way.
