About the Loving Reading programme
The Loving Reading programme aims to develop firm foundations in essential early reading skills and to produce confident as well as happy readers, employing simple yet innovative methods to turn reading from a dreaded chore into a delightful pleasure.
The Loving Reading programme combines phonics and sight-reading in a highly systematic manner, enabling children to quickly learn to recognise patterns and words. Extensive use is made of activities designed to engage and stimulate young minds. The programme is highly customisable and is tailored as closely as possible to each child’s abilities.
The Loving Reading programme is also unique in its use of Energy Workouts. Energy Workouts are simple and fun exercises designed to help children learn more effectively by re-energising them if they are feeling tired and sluggish, or calming them down if they are over-excited and a little rowdy. The Energy Workouts also stimulate learning by balancing activity in the right and left hemispheres of the brain, thus creating a synergistic effect, and positive affirmations are used to build and reinforce the children’s confidence in reading.
