What is the 5 Day Online 7+ Summer Course?
Our Online 7+ Summer Courses are built to provide your child with all the information, techniques and confidence required to be a successful candidate for your chosen schools’ entrance exams. While the online course covers the full range of topics as the classroom course, it is different in several ways:
•Materials to supplement all online classes plus additional practice exercises will be posted to your address before the start of the course.
•Each day parents/guardians and child are invited to engage in 40 minutes of online instruction and guidance from their designated tutor, to help make use of the material in the proper manner. This can be split up into 2 separate sessions - one for maths and one for English, and allows for questions and queries to be handled in regards to previous and current days' work packs. The material for this level is not very complex and so parents will find it easy to follow their child's progress and intervene wherever necessary.
•Over the 5 days, your child will study essential topics, enabling them to fill in any remaining gaps in knowledge and bringing their existing knowledge to a more advanced level. The course is based upon the most popular topics for the entrance exams; mathematics, creative writing, comprehension, listening and dictation, exam technique, interview practice and reasoning skills are all covered.
•Mock/assessment tests are given at the beginning and end of the course, enabling you to see where your child at the outset, and then gain insight as to how they progressed throughout the course. It also allows us to pinpoint any of your child’s sticking points, as well as their general strengths/weaknesses, so we can best provide help in reaching their potential.
These 5-day intensives are perfect for making the most of your child’s summer holidays, especially as so many students have missed out in schooling over the past months due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite the intensive tuition, the virtual class environment and lesson structure is designed to be fun and engaging. This means that your child will be happy to learn, and more often than not, leave with a smile on their face and hopefully some new friends.
How is the course delivered?
For class sessions, we make use of an online interactive whiteboard alongside online video calling via Google Meet, Skype or Zoom. This tried and tested method is very easy to use – and thanks to our years of experience working with students internationally, we now have a track record of effective online tuition with children from ages 8 to 18 in many subjects. The only pre-requisite for this course is that the student must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during online sessions, in order to maintain focus and engage online comfortably.
Our guidance sessions/lessons are delivered online in small groups of 2 children (plus parent or guardian). This range enables the teachers to give one-to-one support with each parent and also allows a comparison and interaction with parents and children of a similar age and ability.
How is the online course structured?
Each day we teach 3 different topics or skills from the 7 Plus test, according to our structured program and the 7 Plus syllabus. Students and parents are instructed in techniques showing them how to answer questions in the correct way, giving them the means to handle any new type of problem as they progress. From the materials sent beforehand, homework also forms a linchpin of the course, with students completing weekly tasks, based on the instruction from each class session.
Additionally, children may be given interview experience to complete the checklist of essential aspects required to face the examinations. We carry out ongoing assessment throughout all of our courses, so we can let you know how likely it is for your child to pass, where they struggle, and under which circumstances success that will be most likely. We may suggest supplemental instruction via one-to-one classes if deemed necessary, and operate a strict policy whereby we only continue tuition for children who are suitable in terms of ability, potential and personality.
