Our aim is to build a community of individuals who want to improve their health and well-being, be part of a supportive group of people and to help children and families develop healthy habits early on in life which in turn will offer life-long benefits.

 

FIT sessions are run by Carl – fully trained personal trainer.
‘Mini FIT’ is for children aged 30ms – 10yrs, the sessions are fun & active. Each week we will have a different creative theme such as ‘Safety in Space’ or ‘Fun as Fireman’. It is run by Lucy, who has worked with children since graduating from the University of Canterbury in 2011. As well as the Mini FIT sessions Lucy works part time as a gymnastics and child development instructor for The Little Gym Europe, she also runs children’s parties with FIT Celebrations and does child minding.

Title of Class: Baby Bumpkin and Tatty Bumpkin
Class Description:

Yoga-inspired classes for babies and children.

Baby Bumpkin and Tatty Bumpkin are award-winning classes, for babies and children from 6 weeks to 5 years. The classes are designed to encourage movement, enhance development and inspire confidence in your child, using a yoga-inspired programme, combining storytelling, music and a world of sensory development.

Baby Bumpkin classes are suitable for babies from 6 weeks to 2 years.
They are designed to encourage movement, development and feelings of calm. The class focuses on you and the well-being of your baby, providing a firm foundation for their social, emotional and physical confidence. The class is about having a fun and happy experience and to firmly establish a warm, caring relationship between you and your baby. You will learn to play with your baby, motivating them to explore their world and become learners for life. The sessions are 3-in-1, combining storytelling, music and simple baby yoga movements.

Tatty Bumpkin classes are for children from 2-5 years
The children will embark on a unique session that links movement with storytelling and music, using yoga positions and a world of sensory discovery. The programme is aligned to the EYFS curriculum and has been designed by paediatric physiotherapists and yoga teachers. The adventure stories will spark the children’s imagination as they embark on journeys to the jungle, soaring into space and diving with dolphins! During the sessions, we work with the children to develop life skills, including communication, core muscle strength (to enable sitting still), crossing the midline (to help with dressing themselves and cutlery use), fine-motor skills (to help with writing), and calming activities (to help with self-regulation and listening).

Title of Class: Band Night
Class Description: Vehicle 4 change has set up a music club called “Band Night”.

This is a music group where you can either come with knowledge of how to play instruments or to be taught when you turn up. Not only are we teaching them to play instruments we are are also looking to teach the youth how to sing and use DJ decks. What we do in these Band nights will be very focused on what the youth would like to do and from this we hope to build a youth panel that can help us progress our work in the future. We also hope that in the future this will lead on to the start of a band, as this is something young people in the local area have showed an interest in.

We have an enthusiastic young youth worker, called Alice who will be supporting Chris, a professional musician to run the group. Spaces are going to be limited, so if you are interested please come to one of our weekly  Thursday sessions or either contact Alice or Mark by email or mobile.

Title of Class: DanceMode KWB
Class Description: INFANT CLASSES
Each session is made up of two half hour classes, half hour drama and half hour street dance. In this time the children learn to develop their characterisation and imagination skills. We work with the children to use their emotions and help develop their confidence from a young age. Opening them up to the exciting world of make believe and showing them anything is possible! In street dance we teach them funky fun routines to their favorite well known songs and help them with their flexibility and coordination not to mention having a great time boogieing and having lots of fun with out loveable staff.

DANCE
We teach them all the foundations of dance working on turns, tricks, big jumps, partner work and funky steps they so often see on TV. Our routines are styled in street dance and commercial hip hop, using the latest songs they hear on the radio. (Opportunities given in IDTA Exams, Competitions and Shows.)DRAMA
We work on several different acting and improvisation skills that will encourage and build imagination, confidence and concentration. We encourage voice projection and work on diction making the children confident to produce solo and group work to large audiences. Not to mention fun games and generally having a great laugh!

**NEW CLASSES**

Lyrical & Contemporary – Our Lyrical & Contemporary classes are designed to help develop strong technique and flexibility. We aim to work on basic dance techniques including turns, big jumps and high kicks. The classes encourage the children’s performance skills and help engage their emotions. We still like to keep our classes trendy and cool so only use the children’s favourite popular slow songs they hear on the radio. These classes will leave you feeling free to express yourself and dance like never before in a safe, friendly environment.
American Tap- Our American Tap classes are a modern spin on the classic Tap class! Using lots of funky, beaty popular songs, we teach the children all the cool tap steps and work on lots of funky, fun rhythms the children all make with their feet! These classes have no set syllabus so the children do not get board learning the same exercises each week to the same boring music. Instead we mix it up by teaching and dancing to various well known songs and go at the class pace building up their tap vocabulary.

Title of Class: Just Dance
Class Description: Just Dance provides dance classes in Modern, Ballet, Street dance, Tap and Musical Theatre and we welcome students of all abilities and ages – starting as young as one year old with our Mummy and Me class.

We believe in making dancing fun, and we support this by teaching the technique, style and even French terminology (for Ballet) through entertaining and interactive classes.

We treat each child individually. Whether they just want to have fun, focus on exams or even make a career of dance, we can help them achieve their goal. Our teachers are all young, enthusiastic, fully qualified and experienced in both teaching and performing.

We provide the opportunity for children to take exams in ISTD Ballet, Modern and Tap. But it doesn’t matter if your child isn’t ready to take an exam, or doesn’t want to – they won’t get left behind and can move up to the next grade with their friends. We understand that the social aspect of dance lessons is just as important as the technique!

INFANT CLASSES
Each session is made up of two half hour classes, half hour drama and half hour street dance. In this time the children learn to develop their characterisation and imagination skills.

In street dance we teach them funky fun routines to their favorite well known songs and help them with their flexibility and coordination not to mention having a great time boogieing and having lots of fun with out loveable staff.

DANCE

We teach them all the foundations of dance working on turns, tricks, big jumps, partner work and funky steps they so often see on TV. Our routines are styled in street dance and commercial hip hop, using the latest songs they hear on the radio. (Opportunities given in IDTA Exams, Competitions and Shows.)

DRAMA

We work on several different acting and improvisation skills that will encourage and build imagination, confidence and concentration. We encourage voice projection and work on diction making the children confident to produce solo and group work to large audiences. Not to mention fun games and generally having a great laugh!

Title of Class: Sue-Chef Cookery School: Private Cookery Lessons & Day Courses
Class Description: The Sue-Chef cookery school provides children and adults with the opportunity to improve or learn news skills in their own home via private lessons or through a number of day courses.

Maybe you would like to brush up on cookery skills you already have, learn something new or try something that is technically more challenging alongside someone who can give you guidance.  Alternatively you may be a complete novice who wants to learn the basics, a student about to live away from home for the first time who needs to learn some easy reliable recipes, or you would like to arrange lessons for a youngster so that they can be introduced to the fun of cookery.

Sue-Chef’s day courses throughout the year culminate with the results of your labours being taken home with you to eat!  How about learning how to bake and decorate your own cakes on our baking courses?

Courses cater up to 12 people and usually take place in most school holidays with a particular theme.  Each course will also provide copies of recipes with a themed basket, box or hamper for you to take your goodies home in.  

We provide the food, the tuition, the equipment and we even clean up your mess afterwards!

Go to our Sue-Chef Lesson page on www.sue-chef.co.uk to see what Sue’s up to or contact us to arrange a visit from Sue-Chef today.

Creative Writing and Language Classes

Title of Class: Les Puces – Early Years French Lessons
Class Description:

Learn French like French children do – through songs, games and stories. For pre-school and primary school aged children.  Parents are very welcome to come and learn alongside their child, sharing the experience and progressing together. Many of our laases are ‘parent optional’ for school aged children.  Exclusive books and making projects tie in with the subjects you are learning.

Our 1 hour classes, taught by experienced linguists, concentrate on a nurturing educational experience. We take time and endorse a structured learning environment where the child and parent learn together.

Classes are in a variety of venues in the area so please check our website to find the most convenient class for you.

Learning a language boosts cognitive function, gives children a head start at school and lets you say more than “bonjour” on holiday! Give your brain something to think about too.

Post Brexit signs are that languages are going to become more important in the future and, as the ear ‘changes’ around the age of 8, it’s a good idea to get some exposure to another language as early as possible.

Other Info:

Les Puces runs throughout the school calendar year. The ideal starting age is from 2 – 4 and suits children up to the age of 11.  Classes are divided into 4 x fifteen minute sessions of learning, singing, making something/colouring and story time. We include a snack or ‘gouter’ at each class and at the end of each half term you will have a project to take home.  On your first lesson you will be given the bilingual book that we are basing that half term on.

We ask you to pay a half term at a time, in advance. Class sizes are limited to 12, to ensure that each child (and parent) gets the best attention. Parents, we ask you not to be shy or to inhibit your child when learning a language and experimenting with new sounds – they learn from you so …. be brave!

Title of Class: Maths and English for Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Class Description: From September, The Right Tuition Company (RTC) will offer English and Maths classes to children in Years 5 and 6, who are higher functioning ASD pupils. This class is aimed at providing a solution for those children that may struggle in a mixed neurotypical class environment.

Here at RTC, we recognise that to learn well, AS children need structure. They respond when they have clear, consistent direction. Our tutor, Sarah Patten, understands the sensory and social challenges that sometimes prevent ASD children from achieving their potential. Her unique approach to teaching children on the spectrum. is to tune into their specific needs and build their confidence by allowing them to be who they are.

The class will have an orderly routine and any workflow changes will be flagged up clearly. Extra verbal and visual cues are employed to help with transitions. These verbal cues are short, direct and concrete.

The classes are calm, quiet and uncluttered to limit visual distractions.

In the class we offer a quiet corner of the room as a safe place where students, who might feel overwhelmed initially, can sit and ‘re-group’ for a few minutes. Sometimes, just knowing that there is a quiet space option can give these children added confidence.

Students with Asperger’s often encounter handwriting deficits. Our classes will allow for extra time in order to work on relevant handwritten exercises.

This class will benefit higher functioning spectrum children, both, academically and socially; building their confidence in a safe learning environment.

Beavers
Title of Class: Beavers
Class Description: Beaver Scouting is all about having fun, making friends and learning new skills.  Youngsters start to gain some independence while trying out many different activities and experiencing new adventures.  They follow a balanced programme, earning Challenge Awards and Activity Badges, but the most important parts are joining in and trying their best.

Fun includes going on visits, making things, playing games and exploring the world around them.  They learn about other people and about themselves.  Beavers don’t go camping but they can have a sleepover indoors, somewhere near home.  

Boys and girls aged 6 or 7 can become a Beaver Scout and around the time of their 8th birthday, Beavers ‘swim up’ to Cubs to continue on their path through Scouting.

Members of the Senior Section can undertake a wide range os awards and qualifications.  These include the Leadership qualification, which helps them in running guiding units for younger girls, the internationally-recognised Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, the Queen’s Guide Award, the Commonwealth Award and other prestigious awards specific to guiding.

Title of Class: Baby Bumpkin and Tatty Bumpkin
Class Description:

Yoga-inspired classes for babies and children.

Baby Bumpkin and Tatty Bumpkin are award-winning classes, for babies and children from 6 weeks to 5 years. The classes are designed to encourage movement, enhance development and inspire confidence in your child, using a yoga-inspired programme, combining storytelling, music and a world of sensory development.

Baby Bumpkin classes are suitable for babies from 6 weeks to 2 years.
They are designed to encourage movement, development and feelings of calm. The class focuses on you and the well-being of your baby, providing a firm foundation for their social, emotional and physical confidence. The class is about having a fun and happy experience and to firmly establish a warm, caring relationship between you and your baby. You will learn to play with your baby, motivating them to explore their world and become learners for life. The sessions are 3-in-1, combining storytelling, music and simple baby yoga movements.

Tatty Bumpkin classes are for children from 2-5 years
The children will embark on a unique session that links movement with storytelling and music, using yoga positions and a world of sensory discovery. The programme is aligned to the EYFS curriculum and has been designed by paediatric physiotherapists and yoga teachers. The adventure stories will spark the children’s imagination as they embark on journeys to the jungle, soaring into space and diving with dolphins! During the sessions, we work with the children to develop life skills, including communication, core muscle strength (to enable sitting still), crossing the midline (to help with dressing themselves and cutlery use), fine-motor skills (to help with writing), and calming activities (to help with self-regulation and listening).
