At Eagle House we are able to adapt our teaching to benefit the children in our groups. Phonics is taught in small groups, based on ability to read, so all children can access reading at their own level. Reading is not just about decoding words on a page, so emphasis is placed upon children becoming accurate, fluent readers with an understanding of the story behind the words.
Children learn the cursive handwriting script and much of their written work incorporates aspects of the IPC curriculum work the children are exploring. This encourages creativity and imagination in writing and builds a firm foundation of vocabulary to expand as they progress.
Children also have access to Reading Eggs and Spelladrome, which is a literacy based app, supporting the children’s learning.
