This school teaches Phonics using THRASS, parents can purchase Thrass Charts and CD’s from the school office and are encouraged to attend the Parental Training Sessions offered by the School – these sessions are run by school staff and will assist parents in learning how phonics are taught to their children so appropriate assistance can be used at home to support learning in school.
Thrass is based on 120 keywords to help learners choose the right sounds when they read and the right letters when they spell.
THRASS UK publishes the English Spelling Chart Resources and is also responsible for training teachers in Europe, the Middle East, South America, Central America (and the Cayman and Caribbean Islands), the USA, Central Asia and Africa. Training is provided through a one-day workshop, or a two-day ‘THRASS Accredited Certificate’ workshop, held in nurseries, primary and secondary schools, teacher centres, colleges, universities and adult centres/businesses.
The resources are for learners of all ages and abilities, including young children (and their parents!) and those learning English as an additional language. They are used to develop speaking and listening skills, vocabulary and general knowledge. They are also used to teach learners to read words by sight and to focus on the meaning, and to work out the right sounds when they cannot read a word, and visualise and name the right letters when they cannot spell a word (through using a thorough knowledge of the keyspellings and non-keyspellings of English). The resources are used in nurseries, primary and secondary schools, and adult centres with individuals, groups and classes (including deaf and blind learners, those with dyslexia, learning or speech difficulties, and those recovering from memory loss as a result of brain injury). The resources are also used by workers and managers in businesses.
