At just four years old, Zahra Hussain is already demonstrating a remarkable talent for reading. Nursery staff are amazed at how confident a reader she is at such a young age. Equally impressed is the nursery manager, Miss Pawaar who described Zahra as “an incredibly advanced reader for her age”.
Zahra is currently being supported to work through the various phases of the ‘Letters and Sounds’ scheme. This helps her to confidently blend and segment the sounds in words and to ultimately decode them. She is racing through the reading scheme and tackling vocabulary aimed at school aged children rather than those still at nursery! It must surely be a pleasure to hear such a talented young pupil read aloud on a regular basis, as the Tots Academy staff are able to do.
