Wellington College Tianjin is a pioneering school offering a holistic British education in Tianjin aiming to be a foundation of cultivation for children and to also give advice, practical help and tips for parents who are keen to give further support for their children’s learning.

Furthermore, in Wellington College Tianjin, we aim to not only provide a high quality British education in Tianjin but also  to innovate with unique educational approaches and teaching practices. For example, Mr Forster, the Year 2 teacher introduced a new comprehensive reading programme, called Read Write Inc by using new methods in teaching practice and language acquisition  has helped improve our pupils language level. The Read Write Inc programme also has a pre-reading programme for the Nursery and Reception Years, where  children can develop their phonemic awareness skills.

The idea of Read Write Inc comes from the theories of cognitive capacity and how they relate to reading acquisition. When children are trying to decode unfamiliar words, a lot of their brain power or “cognitive capacity” is used, leaving little room for the comprehension of the text. Children’s reading will need to become more automatic and fluent for them to be able to successfully comprehend the text. For this reason, this British education school in the heart of Tianjin, uses Read Write Inc programmes to put a greater emphasis on progressing from “sounding out” words to automatic recognition of words, and very cleverly has integrated reading speed tests into their assessments. For children to progress to the next level of Read Write Inc they must demonstrate that they have developed sufficient automaticity and reading fluency.

Indeed, Read Write Inc, the Literacy programme run here in the Nest and Junior School of this British education school in Tianjin, is very cleverly designed to systematically build up the children’s decoding capability until they can successfully decode nearly any word. However, despite our best efforts, there will always be students who struggle to crack the alphabetic code and have a delay in their reading development. Since reading requires unnatural cognitive activity in this way, it is not so surprising that approximately 25% of all children will find it difficult to learn to crack the alphabetic code and read successfully. Once this student does finally crack the alphabetic code and can read successfully, they will have a learning deficit that can only be recovered by reading at a greater rate and volume to their more advanced peers, to catch up for their missed earlier learning.

In fact, teachers from this international school providing British education in Tianjin make full commitments to help children achieve academic excellence. Specifically, some teachers studying part-time master programme to learn more theories of literacy and languages and reading acquisition. Such further study and commitment have a big impact on their understandings of how children learn to read and has resulted in a few “wow” moments of profound reflection and insight.

Together with Read Write Inc and other literacy programme committed by teachers from the college, we are looking forward to children flourishing in learning which further signifies this school as the best British education provider in Tianjin.
