My 'ethos' is to encourage children to learn through the medium of play, and to explore their own boundaries through activities, which push the norm and expand their thinking process.

 

Experience has taught me, that by linking 'our' topics and activities to those being taught in school,  the children quickly identify the two as the same and are less likely to interact with the said activity - after all, their working day is done after the last school bell.

 

I have introduced the children to a new system called 'brainfeed', and I am using this to engage the children, in 'One Week' activities which pushes them beyond their 'recognised' level of learning, and well into secondary school level..Now whilst this might seem strange, the thinking behind the concept is quite simple.

 

By 'feeding the brain' with new information and not repeating information they are being taught in school, the children show high levels of interest, as children in this age group quite literally soak up information. Whilst it is understood that they may not fully understand everything they are being taught, the hope is that at some stage during their school life when these topics do arise, the children will already have at least a basic knowledge of them and will be able to relate back the their learning with me.

 

The learning aspect will consist of short introductory videos which introduce and explain each 'topic' and then some fun activities which further aid the understanding at an age appropriate level.
