Calling all parents and teachers!🙋 

Interested in playing an active role in teaching your kids a good grammar foundation? Keen to upgrade your teaching skills and to help your students more effectively through a structured and proven framework? 😍

Jolly Grammar is a comprehensive 6 years programme which continues throughout the school years. It extends the earlier Jolly phonics teaching with further spelling, grammar and punctuation concepts. Children are taught the core concepts of grammar and punctuation, starting with simple age-appropriate definitions, which are gradually built on with each year of teaching. The teaching continues to be multi-sensory with actions and colour coding (in accordance to evidence-based research) for parts of speech to help children develop their understanding of how language works. The systematic programme means children are given the tools that they need, to independently write what they want, clearly and with expression.

Learn how you can use Jolly Grammar in alignment with the MOE Primary School Syllabus. Make learning Grammar fun!

About our classes

At Curious Thoughts Academy, we provide a through-train approach for English from preschool to secondary school. We use an Australian curriculum from Victoria Carlton Literacy Programme based in Perth. Victoria Carlton is known as the child whisperer in Australia and has taught many children with learning difficulties to read and write. Victoria Carlton’s literacy curriculum is thorough and well-researched and takes into account the multiple intelligences and learning styles of a child.

We complement Victoria Carlton’s learning principles with Singapore’s MOE Syllabus. This provides an effective learning environment that is fun yet structured.
 

What trial class can I sign my child up for?

A) STAR- P1 Preparation Programme

Our flagship programme is Victoria Carlton’s Students at Risk Targeted Intervention (STAR) Programme that helps children with reading difficulties to transition from pre-primary to primary school, helping them get ready for the MOE primary school syllabus.

Our Star (Primary 1 Preparation Prog) is a child-centred, comprehensive programme designed to help all children reach their full potential. Conducted by a former MOE English teacher with more than 10 years of teaching experience from SAP schools, it covers:

✻ Research-based strategies to help all children improve literacy outcomes,
✻ Assessment and ongoing evaluation of children’s literacy levels
✻ Curated reading materials for appropriate levels
✻ Teaching materials and games that are conducted to raise self-esteem and EQ
✻ Brain stimulation techniques

B) Reading is a Hoot! - Phonics Programme

In our Phonics Programme, we use the Jolly Phonics framework coupled with Victoria Carlton’s literacy curriculum.

Jolly Phonics is a fun and child centred approach to teaching literacy through synthetic phonics. There are actions assigned for each of the 42 letter sounds, using a multi-sensory approach. By breaking down letters to phonemic sounds, this helps children decode any word and provides them with a structures and systematic approach in learning to read.

Victoria Carlton’s literacy curriculum incorporates all the multiple intelligences and helps every child to flourish (you can check out our video here showing a typical lesson
