Our CurriculumHow We Boost Your Child’s Confidence in Reading

Your child’s brain is like an active sponge – how it develops during the early school years depends a lot on the skills and tools it absorbs during this period.

With the MindChampion Programme, you can be assured of an outstanding research-backed curriculum designed to complement what your child learns in school. He/she will be exposed to a wide range of age-appropriate learning techniques and strategies, as well as the values and attributes that make up the Champion Mindset.

Our curriculum will help transform your child into a successful individual who shines on all fronts – academically, socially as well as emotionally.

Hour-Glass Model of Active Learning

The Hour-Glass Model of Active Learning provides an overview of the learning journey your child will embark on with the MindChampion Programme.

It is a three-stage process that maps out how your child will go from being overwhelmed by a vast amount of information to being able to confidently apply his/her knowledge to any academic situation

LEVEL AStage 1: Active Understanding

This programme is focused on giving your child the best foundation for reading. This is achieved through exposure to the four key essentials of language development – reading, pre-writing, speaking and listening.

Trainers will read curated books together with your child and use simple questions to encourage him/her to think more deeply about the story and its characters. Multisensory activities are also used to develop your child’s phonemic awareness as he/she identifies individual sounds in spoken words, as well as to inject fun and creativity into each class.

Your child will also be introduced to pre-writing activities such as pattern-making and the preformation of letters.

With this programme, your child will be able to:

Build your child the basics for reading
Enhance their reading, pre-writing, speaking and listening skills
develop your child’s phonemic awareness

LEVEL B Stage 2: Active Storage

In this stage, your child will work on effectively storing the information he/she has distilled into a collection of key thoughts or facts. This will make it easier for him/her to retrieve the information he/she needs at the appropriate times.

LEVEL CStage 3: Active Recall

The third and final stage involves mastering and applying creative thinking and synthesis skills that will enable your child to structure and control information for specific purposes.

As your child’s grasp of these skills matures, he/she will also be able to make creative connections between concepts and construct sound arguments and intellectual positions.
