Group Lessons & Prices
30 Simple Steps
Group lessons take place around London and the UK. There are usually around 2 to 6 children in a group. These lessons are highly structured and pupils are taught how to form words, sentences, numbers and punctuation. As they progress through their workbooks, their handwriting becomes noticeably neater and tidier. Magic Link provides an essential skill which will prove beneficial and rewarding throughout life.
10-12 Lessons to Complete
Sessions involve direct work and demonstrations. Homework, 5-10 minutes per day, is set as regular practise is important in speeding and achieving goals. Pupils require around 10-12 single lessons (or 5-6 double lessons) to complete the wholeprogramme. There may be slight variations depending on the severity of the handwriting and the age of the child.
Story Writing, Speed & Spelling
Magic Link offers comprehensive instruction in neat, cursive handwriting and includes exercises to reinforce story writing, speed, and spelling. By strengthening handwriting skills, it enables children to concentrate on speed, spelling, presentation, and apply this skill to their schoolwork. Completing homework assignments is essential for students to reach their maximum potential in the shortest possible time.
45 minute or 90 minute sessions
Children receive instruction in small groups, where they engage in highly intensive single lessons lasting either 45 minutes or 90 minutes for double sessions. Double lessons allow for faster completion of the programme. Our group lessons have proven to be excellent and effective, encouraging children to collaborate and achieve maximum confidence and speed in their handwriting and spelling skills.
£140 per single lesson or £180 per double lesson
(Includes workbook pack)
Pupils, aged 6-18 years, are instructed in small groups during focused 45-minute single (or 90-minute double) sessions. These group lessons have proven to be an effective and established method for motivating children to work together and build their confidence in their handwriting and spelling abilities. To achieve the best results in the shortest time, 10 minutes of daily homework must be completed.
During the initial consultation, the ‘before’ handwriting sample is taken. We then provide the first Magic Link handwriting workbook and begin the programme. As pupils progress through the course, they are provided with the second and third books. Upon reaching step 30, we consolidate their newfound skills through free writing tasks. The final workbook includes exercises that reinforce neat, cursive handwriting while also improving speed, spelling, presentation, and overall confidence.
Students should purchase a selection of their own recommended pens and pencils from our website to use in our group lessons and at their school. This consultation fee also applies to pupils who have not attended Magic Link classes for 12 months or more. For children on pupil premium, an invoice will be sent directly to their school, subject to authorisation.
£40 per single lesson
Or £80 per double lesson
Pupils of all ages are taught in small groups and these intensive single sessions last 45 minutes. We recommend that older pupils or younger children who have good concentration, receive 90 minute double lessons to complete the programme faster. These groups lessons are an excellent, tried and tested way of motivating children to work together to gain maximum confidence in their handwriting and spelling skills.
Children are required to do 10 minutes per day homework to achieve maximum potential as quickly as possible. At the end of the programme (step 30) pupils consolidate their new skill in free writing tasks. The final workbook contains exercises to reinforce neat, cursive handwriting and to improve speed, spelling, presentation and confidence.
