Crianca’s Phonics classes in Andheri West, Mumbai
Phonetics teaches the five key skills for reading and writing. These skills form a foundation, that children build on with each year from the literacy programme.
Phonetics is a comprehensive programme that meets the requirements of the International Curriculum. Each year of teaching provides continuous revision and consolidation of topics taught in previous years, enabling children to spell and punctuate more accurately, use a wider vocabulary and have a clear understanding of how language works.
Why does Phonetics work?
By learning essential phonetics skills rapidly, children gain confidence, becoming fluent readers who explore different text types and produce more independent writing at 5 and earlier. As children continue to build on their knowledge they are able to move onto more creative writing tasks and develop their reading, spelling and comprehension abilities.
