We believe that nurturing children’s early communication and language skills is vital to their development.
Our Lower Primary English homeschooling courses will help your child develop the foundations of essential skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening. These skills will start your child on the path to becoming an effective communicator and confident learner.
From a very early age children have a desire to communicate their thoughts and needs with those around them. Our courses follow a systematic approach to teaching, through engaging child centred topics, that will motivate and empower your child.
Once completed our Primary English homeschooling course lays the foundations for children to transition smoothly to our Upper Primary Level course.Primary Course Information

Zacharias really wants to read. He keeps showing up with books pointing at words and letters. He also starts writing by himself things he names. Like his famous dinosaurs. It isn't the correct spelling, but he gets closer and closer to it. Something we as parents have been waiting for a long time. Once he can read and write, the world is his.
I'm most impressed that Lily can now start to read and write thanks to Wolsey Hall college. I think she is now well ahead of her class mates. We live in South East Asia and my daughter is 5.5 yrs old. Her school was closed during the China Virus lockdown for several months. We have nearly finished Part 1 - 12 week lessons in English and Maths. English is not my daughters 'mothers tongue' as such; and before starting the course she could not read any words and could only write basic words. At week 12 I'm very impressed with her as she can now read and write so well. Nearly every lesson there's a lot of practice with 'blending' words for reading and 'splitting' sounds for spelling. It really works and she enjoys it as well. The Maths lessons are also good with many different teaching techniques. All resources can be downloaded and thus the guided teaching is easy to follow. Highly recommend this homeschooling college.
The Wolsey Hall approach to reading and phonics is especially well designed. Wolsey approaches learning letter sounds in “layers”. This has made it possible for our daughter to learn to read in a matter of weeks without being overwhelmed. We find it remarkable that our 4 year old daughter is reading small books all on her own with confidence and enjoying it very much.
My daughter’s reading has improved so much, that I’m amazed daily how well she can read. I really like the way the course is designed to teach phonics and graphemes. It gives my daughter confidence to try herself to write new words. She does not ask me anymore for help.
