Reading & Phonics

Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.

Frederick Douglass.


Our Objectives - Reading opens up a world of possibilities and opportunities – it is the gateway to the curriculum and to the fulfilment of our children’s dreams and aspirations. We believe that through reading, our children will have the world with all of its joys, mysteries and challenges opened up to them. Through reading, our children can visit worlds real and imagined and experience what is to walk in someone else’s shoes for a while as well as provide a mirror to their own cultures and customs.

We want our children to not only read for functionality but to be life-long readers for pleasure. In order for this to be a reality, we want our children to be secure and confident readers so that reading does not become an activity that is dreaded, but one that is longed for.
