LiftOff Learn-to-Read

(suitable for K1 to P2)

Training students to become independent readers,
LiftOff is a complete literacy programme that builds
on the pre-reading skills taught in LaunchPad and
focuses on the mastery of reading.

Word Attack Skills

WHAT?

The ability to select and apply a variety of techniques to decipher text.

WHY?

When learning to read, your child must know and use a combination of word attack skills to enable them to decipher text. By acquiring these skills, your child will confidently distinguish between sight words (i.e. memory words) and decodable words, and apply their skills accordingly to improve their ability to read fluently with good comprehension.

Reading Development: Accuracy, Fluency And Comprehension

WHAT?

Reading is the ability to make sense of text. Accuracy, fluency and comprehension are required to become a competent reader.

WHY?

Mastering the reading process requires reading letters in sequence and enunciating all sounds clearly without hesitation and understanding the meaning of the text. Mastering the reading process enables your child to become an independent reader.

LiftOff Primary Practice

(suitable for K1 and K2)

Preparing students for Primary One through active
participation in structured lessons that focus on
skills development, students learn spelling rules,
grammar concepts, guided writing and oral
communications skills, empowering them for
primary school success.

Introducing Advanced Language Components

WHAT?

Your child will be introduced to advanced language components through various language activities. These specifically-designed, guided activities ensure your child exceeds the literacy standard for Primary One.

WHY?

This is an important phase where your child transitions from learning to read to reading to learn. Now that your child has become an independent reader, they are ready to take on challenges, such as knowledge acquisition, critical thinking, drawing inferences, and higher-order thinking skills. These higher expectations are an integral part of the primary school curriculum. LiftOff Primary Practice prepares your child for these challenges, bridging the gap by familiarising them with language components and concepts that will guarantee a smooth transition to Primary One.
