Phonics and Reading
Reading and writing are the key skills that students take great pride in when learning at Dawn House School. All students have access to daily Literacy sessions when they follow identified programmes dependent on their needs. Namely, Read Write Inc, Precision Teaching, Touch Type Read and Spell, Reciprocal Teaching. These programs are designed to help students develop their phonological awareness and improve reading communication, as well as peer to peer communication. All students also enjoy a weekly session of Reading for Pleasure where they can either choose texts from our school library or bring their own. These are very popular among students as they enjoy sharing each other's reading interests.
