How Our Phonics Taster Session Prepares Your Child for Reading

At Jan & Elly English Language School we understand the critical importance of reading, which is why we’re excited to offer our Phonics Taster Session. This special introductory programme is designed to give children aged 4-6 years old a fun and engaging first taste of phonics – the building blocks of reading. 

Through our Phonics Taster Session, we aim to set children up for reading success by providing a strong foundation in phonics skills. But that’s not all. We understand that being a part of your kid’s learning is key, which is why we are also holding a Parent Workshop called “How and Why Phonics Work.” Led by our very own founder, Elly Leong, the session promises to be informative, and a great way to dive into your child’s reading journey.

Laying the Foundation for Reading Mastery with the Phonics Taster Session

The Taster Session is tailored for children aged 4-6 years old, addressing the critical early stages of reading acquisition. By focusing on letter sounds, blending, and reading simple words, we lay the groundwork for your child to develop strong phonemic awareness – the ability to identify and manipulate the individual sounds within spoken words.

During the session, your child will engage in fun and interactive activities that bring phonics to life. From learning letter sounds through captivating games and songs to practising the art of blending sounds to form words, each activity is designed to capture your child’s attention and foster a genuine enthusiasm for the written language.

Passionate about early childhood education, our educators are committed to creating a positive and supportive learning environment that nurtures your child’s natural curiosity and love for learning.

Through gentle encouragement and personalised attention, our instructors will ensure that your child feels empowered and confident in their phonics exploration. By catering to the individual needs and learning styles of each child, we aim to instil a solid foundation that will serve as a springboard for their future reading success.

Personalised Phonics Assessment

One of the unique features of our Phonics Taster Session and Parent Workshop is the individual phonics assessment conducted by our experienced team. This tailored evaluation allows us to pinpoint your child’s strengths and identify areas for development, providing invaluable insights that will inform their learning journey.

Based on the assessment results, our experts will work closely with you to outline the next steps and share strategies on how we can best support your child’s phonics progression. This personalised approach ensures that your child receives the targeted support they need to flourish, setting them up for continued growth and achievement.

Empowering Parents with Phonics Expertise

As the saying goes, “it takes a village to raise a child.” At Jan & Elly, we firmly believe in the power of parent-school collaboration, which is why the workshop also includes a dedicated Q&A session led by our founder, Elly Leong.

During this Q&A session, parents will gain valuable insights into the principles of phonics and how they can be leveraged to foster their child’s reading development. Discover practical strategies and techniques that can be easily incorporated into your daily routine, empowering you to become an active and engaged partner in your child’s learning journey.

Moreover, the Q&A session provides a platform for you to ask questions and gain expert guidance from Elly, our resident reading specialist. With her wealth of experience and passion for early childhood education, she will equip you with the knowledge and tools necessary to support your child’s progress and celebrate their victories along the way.

Unlocking the Door to Reading Success with the Phonics Taster Session and Parent Workshop

The Phonics Taster Session and Parent Workshop at Jan & Elly is more than just a single workshop; it is the first step in a transformative journey that will unlock the door to your child’s reading success. By immersing them in the magic of phonics, we are instilling the foundational skills and confidence they need to thrive as fluent readers.

As your child continues their learning pathway with us, they will build upon the solid phonics introduction established during the session, progressing through a carefully structured curriculum that gradually introduces more complex reading and writing skills.
