I have a child attending Grade 1 (equivalent of Singapore's P1) in an international school in China. She just started her spelling and was taught phonics spelling rules(eg vowels a,e,i,o,u before diagraph 'ck')
Is Phonics (eg blends, Diagraphs, Diphthongs) and phonics rules being taught in Primary schools in Singapore? Or are Singapore's school into whole language teaching?
Thank you so much for your valuable inputs.
