Since 2006, Steady Readers Programme (SR) is an intervention programme for children who are reading below their academic level.

 

Through the teaching of phonics using Jolly Phonics and the Fitzroy Method, one of our goals is to help the children build a strong foundation in literacy skills and the English language. To develop their interest in reading and learning, children are introduced to stories from the Oxford Reading Tree series and other interesting readers. In addition, excursions and learning journeys are organised to enrich their experiences.

 

Besides literacy and comprehension skills, SR also aims to build children’s confidence in reading, speaking and presenting. With increased literacy skill and confidence level, it is our hope that the children will be able to excel and become champions in life.
