Collins International English Foundation and Foundation Plus provide inspirational, fun and age-appropriate learning for children in early years and kindergarten classes.
The materials have been developed in consultation with expert practitioners to be easy to use in the classroom and to support children following a range of early years curricula and who are preparing for their first year of primary education in an international school, including schools following the Cambridge Assessment International Education primary framework.
The course introduces young children to phonics and early literacy skills in an age-appropriate way through topic-based discovery and activity-based learning, with plenty of opportunities to explore books and reading through games and hands-on exploration. Careful progression ensures children develop the skills they need to be ready for English in their first year of primary and beyond.
Each level comprises Activity Books A, B and C – one for each term – supported by Reading Anthologies A, B and C – also one per term – that provide a carefully selected collection of colourful stories and stimulus materials, and a Teacher’s Guide. Schools can opt to use the course over one or two school years.
The engaging and brightly illustrated Activity Books provide age-appropriate practice that is fun for children, that allow teachers to see and record progress, and that show parents what is being covered in class.
Collins International English Foundation and Foundation Plus can be used on their own, or alongside Collins International Maths Foundation and Foundation Plus and Collins International Science Foundation and Foundation Plus to provide a comprehensive early-years programme.
