Years 3 & 4 Primary Foundation
Maths, English and reasoning skills
As children move through the primary years, they start to discover their strengths and weaknesses. Years 3 and 4 are typically the years when educational ‘issues’ come to light and self-doubt can set in.
At Flying Start, we understand that children learn and develop in their own unique way and our courses are designed to help move each child on at a pace appropriate for them. Our Primary Foundation course provides comprehensive coverage of maths, English and reasoning skills.
English areas include: reading comprehension, spelling, grammar and vocabulary building.
Maths areas include: mental and written arithmetic and a wide range of curriculum topics such as fractions, decimals, time, money and worded problems.
In addition, pupils develop their verbal and non-verbal reasoning skills through games, written exercises and problem-solving activities. These activities help children to think logically and creatively as well as laying solid foundations for the Eleven Plus and SATs tests.
Nurturing resilient learners
We know that children have diﬀerent strengths and weaknesses so our lessons support weaker areas and extend strengths, letting each child progress at their own pace.
Rather than focusing only on challenging areas, we encourage our students to move forward and grow even stronger in subjects they enjoy and are good at. This boosts their confidence, ability, sense of achievement and self-esteem.
At Flying Start, we teach our students how to learn smarter. Embedded within the course are a number of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) techniques to improve confidence and concentration. These valuable tools can be applied to a range of subjects and diﬀerent situations, enabling children to become more autonomous and grow emotional resilience. These are tools they will have for life.
