Year 4 Maths and English Sunday Sessions 

Watling Tutors runs two groups for students in Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 & 4) on Sunday mornings from 19th September 2021.

These hour-long sessions include a mix of Maths and English topics, focused on cementing pupils’ understanding of both subjects, and boosting confidence throughout the school year 

Group 1 (following Year 3 curriculum): 9.45am – 10.45am

Group 2 (following Year 4 curriculum): 11am – 12pm

Our next block of sessions will take place on the following dates:

Sunday November 7th

Sunday November 14th

Sunday November 21st

Sunday November 28th

Sunday December 12th

Please note – no session on Sunday December 5th

Each session costs £30 and the total cost for each 5-week block is £150.

All sessions are taught by qualified and experienced teachers, and a block of 5 sessions includes:

• Initial assessment of your child’s progress and individual target setting

• Interim verbal report (either in person or on the phone)

• Final assessment and mini progress report.

It is possible to join a group mid-way through a block but this would not include an initial assessment. 

Group sessions will take place for a maximum of 8 students to ensure that we are able to give individualised attention to all participants.

Our sessions blocks will cover some of the topics below. This may be amended depending on the individual needs of our participants.

Our assessments, content and timings are designed to ensure that we are working with each student’s ability as well as their school year. Group 1 broadly follows the Year 3 curriculum, and Group 2 broadly follows the Year 4 curriculum – but neither are labelled as such. Students will start in the group that corresponds to their school year group but we may discuss with parents the option to move depending on where we think their child will benefit the most.
