This club is all about fostering a vibrant reading culture amongst kids. In the first lesson, we will introduce 3 books  that every student should have read by the time they enter secondary school. Subsequent lessons will be structured around open and active discussions. The aim is to make reading a sociable, collaborative experience.

July 18th, 25th; August 8th, 22nd

1:30pm – 3:30pm

Mastery of the English language is best achieved through an active engagement with the written word. In order to progress beyond the basics, students must grapple with the finer points of interpretation and inference, and they must become independent at expressing difficult ideas in writing. Such aspects of advanced literacy will be covered in this taster course. A more extended offering of Critical Reading and Writing will be a part of PrepWorks’ 2017/18 Key Life Skills package.

August 7th, 8th, 9th

Level 1 : 11:30am – 1:00pm
Level 2 : 9:30am – 11:00am

It is no longer enough to be mere consumers of knowledge. The best students will need to expand their mental toolkit. They will have to learn to evaluate ideas, to question long-standing assumptions, to analyse complex situations, and to find creative solutions to big problems. This taster course aims to introduce these skills to students so that they are set on a path to becoming active thinkers. A more extended offering of Critical Thinking will be a part of PrepWorks’ 2017/18 Key Life Skills package.

July 24th, 25th, 26th

11:30am – 1:00pm

This course is all about stretching students’ mathematical abilities beyond the usual international school curriculum. It is ideal for those preparing for the Maths 13+ Common Entrance Exams. However, the course will also benefit students who want to consolidate their understanding of key maths concepts and who want to discover new techniques of mathematical reasoning.

August 7th, 8th, 9th

11:30am – 1:30pm

This summer, students will get a chance to explore the magic and humour of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Shakespeare’s complex language will be treated more as an exciting intellectual puzzle to be explored, rather than an insurmountable obstacle. Short, digestible problem-solving sessions will lead to students discussing Shakespeare’s deeper themes and finding links to contemporary issues.

July 31st; August 1st, 2nd, 3rd

9:30am – 11:00am

What is Brexit? How is the Trump presidency changing America? Why is the Syrian crisis still unresolved? Will mankind explore Mars within the next 100 years? These issues will be brought to life in our Current Affairs series. Students will be equipped not only with facts, but also with higher order thinking skills to make sense of the world in which they live.

July 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st

Levels 2 & 3 : 11:30am – 1:00pm
Level 4 : 9:30am – 11:00am

Debating requires students to be truly well-rounded. Students have to learn how to speak confidently in public; they also have to develop independent thinking and keen argumentation skills; and they regularly have to move out of their comfort zones, since participants have to think through contentious issues and defend unexpected stances. This Debating Workshop is ideal as an introduction or a refresher for students who would like to hone all these capabilities.

August 15th, 17th, 22nd, 24th

10:00am – 12:00pm

Storytelling is such an essential craft because it can be applied across disciplines. After all, the most immediate way to communicate a message or an idea or some new knowledge is to tell it in the form of a story. This Writing Workshop will help students master the basic elements of effective storytelling, including the devising of a sound plot, the creation of suspense and momentum, and the construction of compelling characters. The content covered is particularly relevant to students who are working towards their IGCSE English Language exams.

August 15th, 16th, 17th

1:00pm – 3:00pm
