Actions, looks, words, steps, form the alphabet by which you may spell character.– Johann Kaspar Lavater
LEARNING THE ALPHABET
Here at Footsteps we appreciate that, in this age of global opportunities, it is imperative that every child that comes through our doors is given the very best start in life when it comes to knowing and fully understanding the English alphabet.
We teach every child the key elements through both formal and informal learning. Here are just a few of the elements which your child will be taught:
Recognition and writing of the capital and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
Learning the sounds of the letters with JOLLY PHONICS.
GETTING READY FOR MATHS
Every subject on the curriculum is important, but such is the need for every child to have a good understanding of numbers throughout their lives that we place extra special emphasis on introducing every youngster to the main, crucial elements of mathematics.
During their time at Footsteps, your child will be taught the following:
Counting numbers, putting numbers in the right order, writing numerals, the ordinal numbers (first, second, third…..), “More”, and “Most”, “Biggest”, “Smallest”, “Shortest”, “Tallest”, etc.
