Espresso contains activities, videos, stories and articles relating to all areas of the Primary curriculum. We especially draw your attention to the Reception and Key Stage 1 activities which are designed to help children develop their letter sounds and number skills.
Lexia is an individually tailored interactive phonics software program that is available in school to every child. Our children take part in Lexia sessions as a whole class, in small groups or work individually. When using Lexia, students are automatically placed at the proper level and work independently to develop their foundational reading skills. The program provides explicit, systematic, adaptive learning on foundational reading skills, scaffolding students as they struggle and advancing them to higher levels as they demonstrate proficiency.
If you have internet access at home and feel that your child would benefit from a daily intensive phonics session please talk to your class teacher. We have access to Home Lexia which parents can access at home. Children who can commit to a daily 10- 15 minutes on the program generally make good progress.
