Limespring School

Limespring Time

Intensive booster morning classes for children aged 6-11.

This is aimed at children who would benefit from the boost provided

  • By intensive and specialist support;
  • From specialist teaching staff trained and experienced in meeting the individual needs of children with learning differences such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia, unlocking their potential;
  • In purpose-designed premises, for up to three sessions per week, while continuing at their current school.

The programme is based around literacy, numeracy and mastering touch-typing:

Literacy: Reading, spelling, comprehension, writing and handwriting.

Numeracy: Number, fractions, times-tables, time, money, shape.

Touch-typing: A tried and tested method of tuition to enable the child to touch-type to a good, basic standard is taught. A home version of the Englishtype package is included in the price to enable practice between sessions.

Having completed the programme the aim is for the child to better access the school’s curriculum and better equipped to engage with their learning. An assessment is carried out at the start, and conclusion, of the programme to provide an objective demonstration of progress.

Each session is for three hours, usually in the morning, and is provided to small groups, from two to a maximum of four children. One to one support can also be provided in this way depending on availability of specialist staff. Following each session the child returns to their school for lunch.

Limespring Time works to boost the child’s learning. It is highly intensive and highly structured and can be tiring for the child. It works best over a single term or usually a maximum of two terms.
