Adult Classes at RISE Studios

Hello everyone,

I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Today I would like to introduce you to one of our dance classes for Adults at MECC.

They run classes at MECC on Thursday evening`s (term time only).

Please see more details about Adult Classes at RISE Studios below.

 

`Adult Classes at RISE Studios! Our adult classes are designed as a ‘dance work out’, so if the gym is not for you, this is the perfect alternative. A great way to tone up legs, bums and tums, in a really friendly and positive environment!

We run our Adult Tap classes at Mill End Community Center on Thursday evening’s (Term time only)

Adult Basic Tap 7.15-8.10 pm, a termly course covering all the basics in a tap. After mastering the basic steps we start working on a routine for the second half of the course. It is best to start at the beginning of a term so that you don’t miss any of the basics, however, if you would like to start partway through you are welcome to do a trial class to see what you think.

Improvers Tap 8.15-9.10 pm, why not brush up on your tap skills and fitness levels at the same time with our improvers tap class? Whether you are an advanced tapper or haven’t tapped in 10 years you’ll soon find your feet- it’s like riding a bike! We tailor the class to our students, so exercises can be modified to suit individuals. We love to use props sometimes for the routines in these classes!

Book a class now via our website Adult Dance classes – Ballet, Street Dance, Tap All levels (rise-studios.com)

Best wishes,

Sylwia

English and maths classes

Hello everyone,

From the public sector to the private, the entire nation has felt the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent lockdown. What’s extensively clear, however, is the significance it’s had on the education sector as a whole.

What does the evidence say?

`There is growing evidence around the impact of school closures on the learning outcomes of pupils. Research shows a consistent pattern:

* Pupils have made less academic progress compared with previous year groups,

* There is a large attainment gap for disadvantaged pupils, which seems to have grown.

Studies from NFER, Department for Education and GL assessment show a consistent impact of the first national lockdown with pupils making around 2 months less progress than similar pupils in previous years. The studies from NFER and RS assessment both show large gaps for disadvantaged pupils, which seem to have grown since the start of the pandemic. While many studies show similar learning effects between English and mathematics learning, some recent studies – including the analysis commissioned by the DfE does indicate some increased learning loss for mathematics. Most studies have taken place in primary schools. Where studies have examined older pupils (DfE and GL Assessment), the results are inconsistent with one study showing similar impacts and the other showing a smaller impact for pupils in secondary schools.`

Mill End Community Centre would like to help your children in their educational path.

To be able to do this, we would like to introduce you to Paul – the English and maths teacher.

Paul is going to have English and maths lessons at our centre from September 2021.

Please have a look at the message from Paul below.

`Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Paul, and I am a full-time teacher resident in Rickmansworth. It has recently been brought to my attention that there may be a need here for booster English and Maths lessons for children. To that end, I wish to make myself available for teaching classes here at Mill End Community Centre on Saturdays mornings and early afternoons. I propose to coordinate classes for as many levels as are required by you (i.e. across all Key Stages, the 11 plus, GCSE); i.e. I plan to set the classes according to the responses received from this notice. The lessons are aimed at being engaging and holistic, promoting confidence, fluency and self-sufficient learning. Students will begin just within their own area of comfort, then progress steadily and solidly towards complex subjects on a step-by-step basis, gradually nurturing a taste for challenge. Students’ progress will be assessed weekly through short tests, and parents should expect feedback from this on a bi-weekly basis, as well as a weekly homework sheet that can be marked by parents according to a weekly answer sheet sent by email. Each class will have a maximum of eight students, ensuring that each child receives sufficient personal attention and assistance tailored to individual pace. If you are interested, please register this (with any questions you may have) at: pauljjjt@hotmail.com.`

Please contact Paul on 07935437131 for more details.

Rickmansworth Aikido Club

Dear All,

I hope this week is treating you well.

I am writing to introduce you to our new group – Rickmansworth Aikido Club.

Aikido is now practiced in around 140 countries. Aikido is often translated as “the way of unifying (with) life energy or as “the way of harmonious spirit”. According to the founder’s philosophy, the primary goal in the practice of aikido is to overcome oneself instead of cultivating violence or aggressiveness`.

Adult Art Classes at MECC

Hello everyone,

I would love to share with you a beautiful work from one of our Adult Art Classes.

Please see a message from Andrew below.

`Adult Art ClassesClasses are for abilities from absolute beginners to experienced painters. For beginners, I will guide you step by step to paint a finished painting. Everybody receives individual attention so that you can progress at your own pace and get what you want from lessons. My aim is for you to get as much enjoyment from painting as I do. I say that oil is the most forgiving and easiest medium to paint with, but don’t take my word for it come and give it a go. I run two classes a Monday evening and a Thursday lunchtime. Ask or contact me for more information:-www.ArtistAndrewSchofield.co.uk

email: ArtAndrewArtist@gmail.com`.

Have a nice week.

Regards,

Sylwia

Hertfordshire Health Walks at Mill End Community Centre

Hello everyone,

Hertfordshire Health Walks – Mill End Community Centre – Wednesdays at 11.00 o`clock.
Is a FREE countywide initiative, helping everyone get outdoors, get more active and experience the social, health, and wellbeing benefits. It is also a great social prescribing scheme helping the patient and freeing up GP time aiming to take a holistic approach to improve health. The walks are a great opportunity to meet new people and socialise on a weekly basis within supportive and encouraging volunteer-led groups. Many of our walkers have experienced health and wellbeing benefits such as weight loss, increased confidence, and reduced dependence on diabetic and anti-hypertensive medication and we have seen walkers from Mill End really benefit from all that the walks offer.
