Classes

Under 5's

With all Gujutots Gujarati classes, whether online or in person, each week covers a different theme, so children learn across a wide range of subjects including cultural topics such as Diwali, Navratri and Christmas!

At Gujutots, we place great emphasis on building children's confidence to speak in Gujarati and growing their vocabulary, as well as learning basic written Gujarati too.

 

More than anything though, we really want children to develop a love of learning Gujarati through immersive and interactive classes to help children retain their cultural heritage and strengthen bonds with family members of all ages!

Under 5's

Sat 10.05am and 10.50am,
Harrow Arts Centre

This physical, face to face class is for children up to and including 5 year olds. We sing songs, listen to stories and play games that capture children's imagination so they are learning Gujarati without realising as they are having so much fun. We occasionally do craft activities too with kids hearing instructions in Gujarati. All materials are provided in class.

Online Classes

Online

Under 4's

Saturdays 8.30am, Zoom

Children as young as 1 can join this class. Its focus is to engage our youngest students early on, getting them to love to learn Gujarati! We sing well known nursery rhymes in English and Gujarati in this class, along with new catchy Gujutots songs and stories with lots of simple actions, props, and puppets, allowing little ones to learn without realising.

LEARNING INTENT: Allowing children to get familiar with the sounds of Gujarati words through song and play and helping them gain a basic grasp of Gujarati vocabulary.

Age 4-8 years

Sundays 9.30am, Zoom

The next stage up is for age 4-8 years. In this class, we want children to continue to have fun and develop a passion for learning Gujarati through songs and stories in both English and Gujarati. There is also more chance for interaction in this class, and children are encouraged to answer questions about what they have seen and learnt, as well as play interactive games & crafts. In these classes, the children are also introduced to the Gujarati alphabet, so, each week, practice writing too.

LEARNING INTENT: To encourage children to speak in Gujarati with correct pronunciation, and to grow their knowledge of and correct use of vocabulary. To learn the basics of writing Gujarati.

Over 8's

Sundays 10.15am, Zoom

The over 8's class is designed to engage these older students, focusing less on songs and more on interactive conversations and question & answer sessions. It's a little bit more advanced as it's expected older children will find it easier to learn and build longer sentences. They see more of the Gujarati script and have a chance to write a little bit of Gujarati too. The children are expected to relate their learning more to the world they live in. They get homework too!

 

LEARNING INTENT: To give children the tools to start to create Gujarati sentences themselves and to grow in confidence to speak in Gujarati with correct pronunciation. To develop an understanding of how to write complete words in Gujarati

Mixed Ages

Sun 8.45am, Mon 5.30pm & 6.15pm, Zoom

The mixed age class caters for children from age 1 to 12 years. It's a broad age range in which the teacher can adjust the content depending on the ages of children attending class in any given week. The main emphasis of the class is to ensure the children have fun and develop a passion for learning Gujarati through the songs, stories, games and craft activities, with interactive elements to help children grow their confidence to speak in Gujarati too. In these classes, the children are also introduced to the Gujarati alphabet, so, each week, practice writing too.

 

LEARNING INTENT: To encourage children to speak in Gujarati with correct pronunciation, and to grow their knowledge of and correct use of vocabulary. To learn the basics of writing Gujarati.
