  • BRICKS teaching;Clear, simple terminologydeveloped for young learners and thosewho need a fresh start. speech sounds linked withpictures of speech sounds(sound pics)Spelling aids to help visual learners including dyslexic brains.Systematic, explicit teaching that scaffolds learning and allows for blending practice through well organised readers.Child centred, personalised inquiry learning.

    BRICKS teaching centres around personal strengths,and helps guide students to become independent, confident, kind learners who love to challenge themselvesand explore the world. BRICKS teachers teach to childrens needs, not to the needs of a one size fits all curriculum.

    BRICKS teachers use tools and resources thatinspire and motivate children,so that they LOVE going to class. They feel safe, listened to, cared for,and respected. They encourage their peers,and judge themselves according to progress along their own learningjourney; at peace with the knowledge thatwe all have different strengths and interestsand cannot (and should not) strive to be like everyone else.

    BRICKS teachers strive to ensure that their teaching meets the needs of EVERY child,and recognises that all CAN read for fluencyand comprehension within 4 terms, whenevidence based strategies are used withina stimulating environment, and when a solidpartnership, and open communication between school and family is fostered. BRICKS teachers are self reflective, and haverealistic, but high expectations for themselves and their students.

    Bringing Research Into Classrooms 4 KidSBuilding solid foundations, but also facing the reality that sometimes we need to re-build, rather than keep trying to rennovate.

    Using cutting edge education and neuroscience research, combined with a passion for literacy, and for children, to change the way we teach reading and spelling, and address learning differences.
