"It says a lot when a Zoom class can be so brilliant...classes have been amazing at teaching key skills without even knowing it" Mum of Holly age 4
Reading Fairy classes run across four ages and stages with core characters representing the crucial building blocks and critical skills for learning to read and loving books for life. Evidence shows that phonics is key to a child’s successful reading journey and plays a central role in our Reading Fairy classes. But it is only one factor. Other critical reading skills needed alongside phonics include: rich language experiences, a wide vocabulary, comprehension (reading for meaning), sharing books and enjoying a range of fiction, non fiction and poetry books.
Children who enjoy reading for pleasure are more likely to do well academically in all subjects (including Maths!), have a wide vocabulary to express themselves clearly, be more accepting of other people and cultures and gain an improved sense of well-being. Reading Fairy classes attend to all aspects of early reading through our unique pre-school programme.
