Reading does not seem like a difficult skill to master, but in reality, learning to read is a complex neurological task. One must be able to split a word into meaningful syllables in addition to understanding the sound represented by each of the letters or letter combinations in the word. The programmes are built on the assumption that learning to read and spell involves a thorough comprehension of the English language's core sounds (phonemes). Phonics is the name given to this field of knowledge, and research shows that about a third of all kids needed special education in this area in order to learn to read fluently and spell correctly.
At a young age, children are frequently enthralled by reading. Because reading is so important for future success in all courses, NRICH teaches pupils to read using phonics. Kids learn how letter sounds combine to make words using phonics. Every new letter is used to teach him to read new words wherever they go. Without guessing, our children employ phonics ideas to sound out words. As a result, our students are more confident in their reading abilities and are ready to take on new challenges.
The capacity to recognise and apply math principles in many aspects of life is known as numeracy.
Understanding numbers, counting, solving number problems, measuring, estimating, sorting, finding patterns, adding and subtracting numbers, and so on are all examples of numeracy skills.
To assist kids recall numbers and geometric forms, we use various activities. Students learn to count forwards and backwards as well as recognise the value of different numbers. By linking quantity to what they see or touch, we teach them to understand the concept of quantity—that numbers signify how many or how much of something. They practise math by solving addition and subtraction questions based on everyday objects.
