HOLIDAY PROGRAMMES

Looking for a holiday activity that your children will love, while expanding their knowledge?

Join us at I Can Read for three exceptional holiday programmes!

It’s always a challenge to find activities for your children in the holidays – especially activities that both children and parents will love. Our I Can Read holiday programmes are a fantastic, enjoyable way to engage your child in literacy and speech-based activities that will instil a love of literacy for life.

So that we may dedicate attention to students, ensuring they gain the most from their holiday experience, our places are limited, so please reserve your place early.

Programmes run 2 hours per day for 1 week, commencing 12th April 2021 and 16th April 2021.

Morning or afternoon sessions available.

Speech & Drama Holiday Programme

SPEECH & DRAMA PROGRAMME

2 hours per day over 5 days

Programme aimed at children 5 to 7 years

As well as being great fun, speech and drama lessons are really important for your child. The average person communicates 80% of the time through speaking and listening, compared to around 20% through reading and writing. Building confidence in speech and drama will help your child acquire communication skills that will last a lifetime.


Speech and drama activities facilitate your child’s learning process by motivating him or her to think, listen and speak clearly by participating in activities such as riddles, tongue twisters, role play, mime, games, voice projection, speech exercises, stories and script-writing.


Speech and drama lessons are designed to:


·      build confidence through practise of oral expressive skills and communicating freely in a social setting;

·      model conventional and grammatically correct speech patterns;

·      ensure clarity of articulation;

·      encourage use of language and bodily expressive techniques as tools for communication;

·      introduce students to script writing and performing their own work.
