Getting back to learning after lockdown

Kumon Firhouse

Learning during lockdown was challenging for many students and their families. Getting back into school has been another challenge. Our Kumon study programmes are designed to allow your child to study maths and English at their own pace. Each child is assessed at the beginning and a study plan is devised to suit. This plan is adjusted throughout the child’s journey to ensure they are comfortable in the level they are studying while also being challenged enough to learn and develop their potential. When a student joins Kumon a pack of work is delivered to their home.

They complete this work daily and record their times and scores on a tracking sheet. On class days the students complete their work in our Zoom classroom. During class we can closely monitor their progress and answer any questions. Combining the information from class and their tracking sheets from their daily work allows us to accurately choose the next batch of work for them. Students studying English in our Zoom classes are encouraged to read aloud to the instructor in breakout rooms with small groups of children. We also have a Kumon recommended reading list which students can use to help them find books appropriate to their current level of English.

Through studying the Kumon Maths and English Programmes, children can reach an advanced level of study, often far beyond their school curriculum. Crucially, they develop the ability to learn for themselves. The Kumon Firhouse Study Centre is accepting new students. Both assessments and classes are currently being held on Zoom so your child can work safely from home.
