|Tips#1: Read Together Every Day|
|Read to your child every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close together. Bedtime is an especially great time for reading together.|
|Tips#2: Give Everything A Name|
|You can build comprehension skills early, even with the littlest child. Play games that involve naming or pointing to objects. Say things like, "Where's your nose?" and then, "Where's Mommy's nose?" Or touch your child's nose and say, "What's this?"|
Welcome to Oak Heights School! We are known to be one of the highest achieving schools within the Borough of Hounslow. Over time our school is gradually being known in public as our numbers of students are increasing. We offer education to children from the age of 11-16 years old. All subjects within the curriculum are taught including the option of taking on a language of either French or Spanish.
As part of our Term 1 creative curriculum development we have organised a cupcake baking competition which is taking place next week Monday! The competition is based on the designs of the cupcakes which gives the students a chance to bring out their creative side! The competition is open for all the students in the school. Being creative allows the child to expand their thinking and creativity skills.
As a bonus point, students are also taken to swimming as an extra curriculum every week in order to keep them active and healthy. P.E lessons are also held at a leisure centre where the students have access to lessons using full courts and professional equipment held by professional trained coaches. Children are supervised by staff commuting there and back to school at all times. During break and lunch, children have the opportunity to play table tennis within the play room.
|Tips#3: Say How Much You Enjoy Reading Together|
|Tell your child how much you enjoy reading with him or her. Look forward to this time you spend together. Talk about "story time" as the favorite part of your day.|
|Tips#4: Be Interactive|
|Engage your child so he or she will actively listen to a story. Discuss what's happening, point out things on the page, and answer your child's questions. Ask questions of your own and listen to your child's responses.|
The unique point of Oak Heights School is that we focus to keep our class sizes to a minimum so more attention from teachers is given to individual students. Having a small number of students in the class allows children to all socialise together and be confident whereas in bigger schools it is a known fact where groups of friends are created and many students are to be left out. This is never the case at our school!
The school is well maintained with many facilities within the school such as a science lab where they are able to carry out science experiments within their lessons complying with all health and safety regulations. We believe that it is very important for a child to be disciplined and be taught how to respect elders and other people in the classroom therefore misbehaviour and bullying is not tolerated at all times.
Children are taught key life skills which they will need within the future to carry out any chosen life career and we believe this is the right stage in life to be taught. The motive is to have every individual achieve their highest potential and strive to do their wishful future career. Many children from our Independent School have achieved their willing grades and had the opportunity to go forward and study at top Universities such as Oxford University which is a very high achievement for a small school such as us. Start your children's future here for a better future.
|Tips#5: Read It Again And Again And Again|
|Your child will probably want to hear a favorite story over and over. Go ahead and read the same book for the 100th time! Research suggests that repeated readings help children develop language skills.|
|Tips#6: Talk About Writing, Too|
|Draw your child's attention to the way writing works. When looking at a book together, point out how we read from left to right and how words are separated by spaces.|
