The Kumon English Programme aims to develop each student's ability to read and understand a variety of texts, and to nurture a life-long habit of reading for education and enjoyment.
Each student starts at their own, individually set, starting point which will be established during their free assessment. They will begin at a comfortable level, allowing us to focus on developing a strong foundation in the way they study, paying attention to pace, concentration and rhythm.
Kumon worksheets are designed with examples and instructions to support students in becoming independent learners.
The English programme progresses from basic word and sentence building and culminates in critiquing advanced texts. Through daily study of this programme, students develop a wide range of reading comprehension skills, ultimately enabling them to interpret information in advanced literature and become proficient readers. They build upon strongly formed foundations to develop reasoning, interpretation, deduction and persuasion abilities.
Our Recommended Reading List complements the programme, encouraging students to explore books from various genres and styles.
Additionally, we offer worksheets with colourful pictures to help early learners develop pencil control skills.
