Educational and Fun Holiday Camps in 2021

We prepare new content, materials and exciting projects for every camp. Even if your child has joined us for previous camps they will always learn new things and cover new subjects.  We are now running our Half Term and Holiday camps ONLINE (if you are interested in face to face camps, please let us know).

All classes are run by our usual teachers so children may well be familiar with the teachers they see online. Our teachers all have enhanced DBS checks and are experts in their subject, usually with a PhD or Masters in Mathematics, Programming or Robotics. 

You can register for one of our camps by filling in the form here

February Half Term, 13-19 February 2021

!SOLD OUT! 13-14 February: ONLINE Oxbridge Camp, ‘Algebra in Number Theory', for Years 11-13 

The Oxbridge entrance exams have never been easy. But LondonSMP knows what the examiners are looking for and how best to prepare for them. This invaluable knowledge: what you need to know and the recipe for success in A-levels and beyond, are all contained in our  Oxbridge Weekend Camps.

!SOLD OUT! 15-19 February: ONLINE Junior Maths, Coding and Chess Camp, ‘The Science of Sharing! Fractions and Division’ for ages 5 to 7.5 

We will offer a variety of engaging tasks for pupils to get a first grasp of what fractions are and how to work with them. These activities lay a firm foundation for understanding proportionality in general and prepare children for more advanced topics related to fractions and decimals they will come across later in school.

Fractions theme will also be the backdrop to the children’s study of  Programming while Chess will sharpen smart young minds, even if they have not played before!


!SOLD OUT! 15-19 February: ONLINE Senior Maths and Programming Camp, ‘Understanding Probability and Randomness', for ages 7-16 

This February half term we will be exploring the exciting subjects of Probability, Statistics and Randomness. In both programming and mathematics we will look at why these topics are so important, how they work and where they appear in the world around us.

As ever, participants will be divided into small classes of six or fewer, based on their age and experience in maths and programming.

 

Easter Holidays, 3-16 April 2021

3-4 April: ONLINE Oxbridge Camp, ‘Differentiation and Curves', for Years 11-13

Very difficult topics in the A-Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics curricula are implicit differentiation, curves and polar curves. We will practice these topics and use Geogebra software to draw beautiful curves, create animations and reveal the properties of some famous curves such as the nephroid, cardioid, astroid and lemniscate.


The format for senior online camp is as follows:

  • each day runs for six hours with four one hour classes and strategic breaks from the screen between them

  • class sizes are six pupils or fewer of similar age and ability

  • all classes are interactive, using Zoom, with pupils solving problems with the teacher and with each other  

  • class times are: 10.00-11.00, 11.30-12.30, 13.30-14.30, 15.00-16.00

  • Fees are £300 for three days, £400 for four or £500 for five

Places are limited, please register your interest HERE.

To take part you must have a PC or laptop (Windows or Mac OS) with a camera and mic and a stable internet connection. 

Our capacity for the camp is only 35 pupils because classes are even smaller than usual. This contrasts with the 150 pupils we would usually teach across several camps. We will therefore have to give priority to pupils booking for five days. While we would hope to also offer daily classes in just maths, programming, robotics or chess as a 5-day course for £125, this may not be possible if all camp places are taken.  

If you are booking a senior camp for fewer than five days we would encourage you to start on Monday.
 

The format for junior online camp is as follows:

  • each day there are three 45 minute classes with strategic breaks from the screen between them

  • class sizes are limited to three to five pupils of similar age and ability

  • all classes are interactive, using Zoom, with pupils solving problems with the teacher and with each other  

  • class times are: 9.00-9.45, 10.10-10.55 and 11.20-12.05 (or 12.40-13.25)

  • Fees are £345 for five days, Monday to Friday
