Dear All,

 

Unfortunately under current guidelines I canÕt continue classes in my home but luckily we can continue to use the Scout Hut (SP1 3DD).

 

Here is the program for the autumn term until the 11+ (you may need to click “view the whole message” at the bottom, or find it on my website) I am not expecting anyone to do it all but it is a mix and match selection.

 

Weekly Classes

 

Since the introduction of the CEM paper about 5 years ago for the boys, I have split the boys and girls at the beginning of the autumn term.

The class times are:

 

 

4:15 - 5:15

5:45 – 6:45

Wednesday

Boys (CEM)

Girls (GL)

Thursday

Girls (GL)

Boys (CEM)

 

The children will be seated 2m apart. There will be hand sanitizer and we will endeavour to keep the children apart. I will have an extra pair of hands and I will use a microphone. There will be up to 15 children in a class. We used this format over the summer and it worked well.

 

In terms of work, we will continue as we have done and at this stage it is mostly mopping up silly mistakes. The major difference between the boys and girls being that the boys study Non-Verbal Reasoning.

 

 

Workshops

 

These are on Saturdays (except for the Half-Term Workshop which is on Wednesday) and will concentrate on problem areas highlighted in the August Mock Exams:

How to Book

To ensure that we remain within the Government guidelines we are using PayPal so that we donÕt overbook the number of children in the hall. If the Classes are full I will endeavour to open another session.

What to Wear

 

Dress for an Arctic Expedition. The government guidelines suggest keeping doors and windows open. Keeping a heathy breeze of fresh air means that the children freeze in anything less than 23degC. So please wear a coat, hat, scarf, gloves and have a lap rug. I will not be offended if the children sit in sleeping bags, have heated wheat bags or thermoses of tea. Normally I bring bags of blankets, scarves and cardigans but I can’t now. Imagine the hall is like a structurally sound gazebo and that these are essentially outdoor classes.

 

 

Covid?

 

If we have learnt nothing else over the last few months, we have learnt this: everything can change at a momentÕs notice! If we have to cancel we will refund you your money.
