Mathematics Refresher Courses

01 Mar 2018

Classes V and VI were given the opportunity to join Mathematics Refresher Courses to brush up on their mathematical skills. The children filled in a self-assessment form in which they identified topics they could do independently,  needed practice in or needed guidance in. Based on the survey children who needed more practice or guidance were invited to join the after school programme for the topic they wanted to work on. The result was a mixed ability group of students working together. They were shown videos, explained concepts and given worksheets to work on.  Each session had a lead teacher and two support teachers so the student teacher ratio was about 8:1. This allowed for more individualized teaching. The course went very well and the number of children attending kept increasing daily.
