At Vibrant Learners, our programs are designed to make sure that every student progresses at the optimum rate.

Maths & English is a cumulative subject. Without the basics in place, students are storing up problems that will surface down the road. Most of the issues that we see are because a student has missed a topic, or just “didn’t get it” and, in a classroom setting, there is seldom a second chance.

Our job is to fill any gaps in learning so that every student progresses quickly and sustainably. We use the traditional paper-based resources, many written for us or by us, to cater for every student’s individual needs. For example, our 11+ maths resource is based on questions all of which have featured in the Essex 11+. Our 11+ students will have no nasty surprises when they see the exam paper!

Our Outlearn program is paper-based, it’s unavailable anywhere else in the area, and it’s fun! It caters for ages 5-12. For the older students and those preparing for GCSE maths exams, we use Dr. Zargle (past papers with worked solutions) ConquerMaths and Kerboodle, as well as our own expert knowledge and resources. 

Give us a call:




Speaking and Listening

  • Speaking clearly and grammatically

  • Listening carefully

  • Acting out stories

  • Singing songs with actions and intonation

  • Taking part in ‘show and tell’ sessions; for example, your child may make a model at home, and tell the class about it

  • Making up stories, rhymes and poems


  • Naming and sounding the letters of the alphabet

  • Linking sounds to letters (phonics)

  • Recognising groups of letters, for example, ‘oo’ and ‘ee’

  • Hearing and saying sounds in words

  • Recognising familiar and common words

  • Writing labels, captions and mini books

  • Using phonics to write simple consonant-vowel-consonant words, and having a go at more complicated words

  • Beginning to form simple sentences

  • Using basic punctuation

  • Beginning to learn to spell


Speaking and Listening

  • Sing songs together.

  • In the car, listen to story CDs.

  • When you read a new story, ask your child to predict the ending.

  • Look at a picture book together and play a spotting game.


  • Read with your child every day – little and often is the best way to learn.

  • Make it enjoyable – if your child isn’t in the mood, try again later.

  • Rhyming books are great fun and your child can join in.

  • Be a role model – it’s important to let your child see you reading.

  • Play with letters: make them out of dough, bricks, or buy some magnetic letters and stick them on the fridge.

  • Play I-spy when you go out – use the sound the letter makes, rather than its name.


  • Develop fine motor skills: try modeling with clay or threading beads. Anything fiddly is good for the hands.

  • Practice forming letters – it’s often easier to make them big at first.

  • If your child doesn’t want to pick up a pencil, try finger paints, or drawing in the sand.



Numbers as Labels and for Counting

  • Counting up to ten and beyond, using cardinal numbers

  • Recognising the numbers 1 to 9

  • Counting aloud in ones, twos, fives, tens

  • Estimating a number of objects and checking by counting

  • Matching and comparing the number of objects in two groups

  • Counting out a number of objects from a larger group

  • Positioning items according to their place in a group using ordinal numbers (first, second, third, etc.)


  • Using a number line to count on and back

  • Finding one more or one less than a number from 1 to ten

  • Sharing objects into equal groups and counting how many are in each group

  • Understanding that ‘addition’ means combining and ‘subtraction’ means taking away

  • Finding the total number of items in two groups by counting them all

  • Comparing numbers and recognising which is ‘more’ or ‘less’

Shapes, Space and Measurement

  • Comparing quantities and using words such as ‘greater’, ‘smaller’, ‘heavier’ or ‘lighter’

  • Recognising and creating their own simple patterns

  • Naming and describing the shape and size of solid (3D) and flat (2D) shapes

  • Using everyday words to describe the position of objects

  • Sorting familiar objects and describing their differences and similarities

  • Making patterns and building models

  • Putting two or three items in order, according to their length or weight

  • Matching shapes and patterns

  • Building on a basic understanding of time: putting familiar events in sequence; measuring time, using a sand-timer



  • Practise counting – you can do this anywhere: count toys, books, how many buses you see when you go out.

  • Play hide and seek – again, good practice for counting.

  • Save your cereal boxes and cardboard tubes for making models.
    Your child will think they’re making a castle; you’ll know they’re learning about shapes!

  • Do a jigsaw together – a fun way to develop spatial awareness and matching skills.

  • Play card games – even a simple game of snap helps to develop number recognition.

  • Have a teddy bears’ picnic: count out toys, place settings, and share out the cakes.

  • At bathtime, play with different-sized containers.
