At LGS, our students benefit from increased confidence in spelling and reading by becoming letter detectives who learn how to dissect the English language and understand its rules. Our young detectives explore and develop understanding of why letters work in different patterns. Good understanding means that they never have to rely on unreliable rote learning again.
In small groups, our passionate and caring teachers aim to enthuse and challenge our students to detect the patterns within words. They work through the LGS programme in a varied and imaginative way, building knowledge and interest.
We place a high value on enjoyable learning and each rule is reinforced using art, drama or games. This is not just because we want happy, motivated students but because an enthusiastic, creative approach helps to make learning memorable.
LGS started by helping just those who found spelling tricky, now we find even those who don't struggle with spelling enjoy learning this way. Please have a look at our testimonials to see what parents think about our methods.
There are holiday camps throughout the year, click around and do a bit of detective work yourself, this is not what you thought a literacy club would look like!
