Our Programmes have to be bespoke because EVERY child is different and we design our teaching around your child.
CATCH UP PROGRAMME
This is based on Reading Recovery approaches and provides children with a boost aiming to enable your child to reach age expected levels of reading within 12-20 weeks. We help the child understand messages in reading and construct messages in writing whilst all of the time developing confidence and self belief. Your child will have one session a week with our teacher where they read several familiar books, a new book, compose write and read their own sentence and learn specific phonic, letter and key word based skills. We provide carefully chosen, appropriate resources allowing you to practice at home with your child between sessions. The goal is to bring your child up to the level of his/her peers and to provide the assistance they need to develop independent reading and writing strategies and to experience success.
INTRODUCTION TO READING
This programme is for children who are getting ready to start school. We carry out a basic assessment and design a bespoke course of six 30 minute sessions introducing the basics of early reading and writing. We provide carefully chosen, appropriate resources allowing you to practice fun activities at home enabling your child to shine at school.
