• FOCUS
The TFA curriculum follows the phonic approach to language development, based on sounds and associated symbols. In addition to this, students are exposed to sight words – high frequency words -in English. This allows them to acquire reading proficiency by quickly and easily decoding sounds & words.
Pre-writing activities commence in Nursery, followed by orientation to formal writing by the second term of Junior KG.  By Senior KG students engage in free and creative writing, to build confidence and mastery over the language (as per their age appropriate levels).  Strict assessment of spellings and format is not encouraged at this level, so that children get over the fear and inhibition to write freely.
