Key Stage 3 Interventions
Key Stage 3 is the first three years of secondary education. During those three years, students set the pace for work at GCSE level, so they are an important part of academic life that often get overlooked. KS3 is a fundamental stage in a child’s development as it allows them to build upon the foundations in KS2 whilst aiming towards their GCSEs with confidence.
Our classes for Key Stage 3 are designed to ensure that students grasp the new topics they are learning and to help build their confidence and fill in any gaps or weaknesses in their knowledge. Some students in Key Stage 3 may also be working towards the 13 plus exams and SATS.
IllumEducation ensures that every child feels confident and capable of all their target areas in English, Maths and other subjects. They are given assessments at regular intervals so that you can be sure of their progress and they feel comfortable with the examination process.
We have developed a structural approach to English. Each student is taught six sentence constructions. Once these have been mastered, the student is then taught the three paragraph constructions. The student then learns the full range of essay plans for: discursive essays, persuasive essays, presenting an argument, story planning and report writing. Other students are taught the four part poetry analysis, which offers a simple method to understand poetry. Plays and novels are also explained in a clear and precise way. Everything is designed to empower the student and to help him or her to gain the maximum grade in SATs and GCSEs.
Homework is always set and based upon what has been taught in the lesson. Parents can call in at the Centre at anytime for assistance with school matters or for a progress report of their child.
For our Key Stage 3 pupils, we provide:
Online and in-centre assessments to check levels and progress
Weekly personalised lessons in mathematics, English and other subjects.
Online one-to-one classes
The new national curriculum for Key Stage 3 is designed to help children progress beyond the knowledge they acquired in primary school and build foundations ready for GCSE. All of our classes are national curriculum based so we can provide as much support as we can with your child’s academic development.
