September saw the start of our Multiply maths and ESOL classes. Our Entry level students learned about prices and budgeting, all underpinned with ongoing English language skills.

This was such a success that, as part of our curriculum, the students budgeted for our annual Premier Learning Christmas party. Our lessons saw them planning for food and making some lovely individual invitations. This, in turn, led to a maths in action lesson, which took place in Tesco and saw students using their shopping and budgeting skills to buy items for the Christmas party. We followed this with coffee and mince pies in the café, where we shared our ideas and had a thoroughly lovely
hands-on lesson.

Students have progressed through the maths and English curriculum and many are now confidently using numbers and measurement in their daily lives.

Feedback from students has been positive and it has been rewarding to be part of their learning

One student has kindly shared his enjoyment of the classes, from learning maths and language to simply meeting new friends. He has learned new skills at each lesson which he will take forward in life and build upon.

This is just the beginning of a journey which we are privileged to have been a part of and we extend our best wishes for his future and for that of all of our students, many who will progress through the levels or simply gain confidence and skills in their daily lives.
