It’s never too early (or too late) to cultivate a love of literature.
Our Pre-Phonics programme uses a multi-sensory approach which includes activities such as clay play, sand writing, singing, letter painting, games and more! Lower School and Butterfly after school phonics classes follow the ‘Jolly Phonics’ curriculum - a multi-sensory and active approach that introduces 42 letter-sounds through activities, songs, motions, formation and blending.
Phonics at the Bugs level and above builds on the Read, Write Inc. curriculum as used in our full-time international school classes. It is well-suited for struggling and advanced readers alike, as well as native English speakers and English language learners. Key elements of this programme are routine, repetition, review, oral blending and a reliance on “sounding out.” Sight words, high frequency words with non-phonetic spelling such as “the”, are also taught.
With frequent attendance, children will gain confidence and speed, and grow into enthusiastic readers and writers!
