Summary

This project will change the way we teach. Children in our school come from different tribes in Uganda, each with its own language and culture. We teach in English and Luganda, so face the challenge of bringing everyone in a class up to the same level of literacy skills. The Jolly Phonics programme will help all our pupils to learn or catch up in a fun way, gain language competence and self-confidence via the child-centred approach using a multi-sensory method of sounds, actions and spoken word.

Challenge

The children in our school come from different tribes throughout Uganda, each with it's own language and culture. Teaching in our schools is in English and Luganda. Every year we face the challenge of teaching the most basic and rudimentary language skills to the new pupils so that they can reach the same level of literacy skills as their fellow classmates. Only then is it possible to teach the whole class effectively, and for each child to enjoy learning in a safe and supportive environment.

Solution

The Jolly Phonics programme is a proven child-centred approach to teaching literacy through synthetic phonics in a fun and engaging way. With actions for each of the 42 letter sounds, the multi-sensory method is very motivating for children and teachers, who can see their students achieve. The sounds are taught in a specific order (not alphabetically). This enables children to begin building words as early as possible." The equipment includes flashcards, workbooks, posters and teacher manuals.

Long-Term Impact

Improvement of the literacy and language skills of each and every child from the kindergarten to the top class of the primary school, around 300 pupils per school year. It will empower teachers to raise standards, whilst improving their own skills and encouraging good communications across the generations. The programme will provide the tools the pupils will need to succeed at secondary school and therefore help them reach their individual potential in further education and gaining independence.
