For 5.5 to 6 year oldsYour children are doing 50m laps. Let’s keep them going!
As our students develop their vocabulary, their reading skills and confidence increase. Watch as they progress from reading and writing 2-3 letter words, to attempting phrases and sentences! The Swimmers level introduces front and ending consonant digraphs and blends, along with longer High Frequency Words. In this journey towards being advanced readers, students are also introduced to basic grammatical concepts, sentence synthesis and guided comprehension. This sets the stage for them to experience the diversity of the English Language and apply what they have learnt.
