Don’t fizzle your brain this summer in the sizzling heat! Superior Minds presents Summer Camp.
The final school bell rings and you race out of school to the bliss of the summer holidays!
With Ramadhan around the corner, the reduced school hours and summer holiday period lasting over two months, students are at risk of losing everything they have learnt throughout their school year.
Summer learning loss is the phenomenon that occurs during the summer holidays whereby students experience a loss of academic skills and knowledge. This can vary depending on grade levels and subject.
Whilst some students can benefit from a little rest and relaxation, there are serious consequences seen in this phenomenon.
Research has shown that as gaps in student achievement are relatively constant during the academic year, the gap widens significantly during the summer holiday. Students can experience a two to three months’ loss in reading and maths skills in the summer holidays alone.
This can have a grave impact on students who may already be struggling in school and are falling behind. Foundational gaps can also increase, causing an impact on all learning processes as a whole.
Summer learning loss can also have a knock-on effect into the following academic year. Research has shown that teachers spend a significant amount of time re-teaching material due to summer learning loss, ranging from three to five weeks and maybe longer. When students are not practicing their skills, they are unable to perfect them.
Research over 100 years shows that students ‘score lower on standardized tests at the end of the summer than they do on the same tests at the beginning on the summer’.
That’s why at Superior Minds
, we have two events running this summer guaranteed to keep your child intellectually stimulated!
We have our academic summer camp for students aged 6-11 years, running every week day from 9th July until 31st August from 8am until 2pm. This camp takes a fun and stimulating approach to learning with activities based around Maths, English, Science, Robotics and much more!
We also have Kip Kamp, a series of 80-minute sessions using our dedicated programmes for Maths and English being run during the summer holidays. These sessions will include a tailor-made programme on specific topic areas that your child struggles with. We will target your child’s unresolved gaps in foundation level learning and allow them to use these two months’ holidays to catch up and get the support they need in areas they find difficult to grasp and understand. This programme will also be running from the 9th July until 31st from 2.30pm until 5.30pm. These sessions will cover a variety of topics in each subject according to your child’s age and year group. Please contact us for more details regarding the timetable available.
