Math class

Math Class

The Common Core concentrates on a clear set of Math skills and concepts. Students will learn concepts in a more organized way, both during the school year and across grades. The standards encourage students to solve real-world problems. Gulu Gulu teachers ask the students to justify, in a way that is appropriate to the student’s mathematical maturity, why a particular mathematical statement is true, or where a mathematical rule comes from. Understanding and procedural skills are equally important, and both are assessable using our program and mathematical tasks of sufficient richness.

English Class

Phonics


Our Phonics class will enable your children to build the foundation required to become fluent readers and accurate spellers. Different combinations, including blends, digraphs, and letter sounds, will be taught, read, heard, and spelled throughout the course. The pronunciation aspect will be heavily emphasized to ensure your child pronounces words with the clarity of a natural English speaker. Towards the end of our program, your child’s reading and spelling ability will be noticeably more advanced.


Reading

Through stories and literature, as well as more complex texts that provide facts and background knowledge in certain areas, students will develop their interests and enjoyment of reading. We make sure students understand the content and are able to rephrase and comprehend.


Writing

Our students learn to develop arguments to support claims with clear reasons and evidence. We utilize informative/explanatory text to examine a topic and convey ideas, concepts, and information through the selection, organization, and analysis of contents. We examine narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective techniques, descriptive details, and well-structured event sequences. Students also learn about the production and distribution of writing, and how to research to build and present knowledge.


Grammar

Students will learn how to put words together in a sensible order and add the right endings, knowing how to produce combinations of sounds and letters that others can understand.

Storytelling and Drawing Club

Our students practice storytelling and gain confidence in the depth and quality of their creative ideas, while building up drawing skills and expressing ideas and feelings through representative pictures drawn by hand.


Coding Class (Friday)

Coding for kids refers to the opportunities available for children to get involved in coding. These opportunities aim to be fun and gamified to keep kids’ young minds engaged. Coding for kids helps improve their mathematics and writing skills and gives them valuable skills in life and eventually in the workforce.

Music and Singing


Students will learn musical sounds with the voice and augment regular speech by the use of sustained tonality, rhythm, and a variety of vocal techniques.

Our lessons help children to develop a healthy lifestyle and incorporate fitness as a natural part of life. It also incorporates developmental elements like leadership, respect, confidence, self-esteem, memory, creativity, coordination, and cultural awareness.
