New to Phonics Training Overview

3 Hour session: £550 + VAT + travel expenses

This training is ideal if your school is new to phonics or just needs a refresher. You do not need to be a Phonics Shed school for this training, as all major schemes and good practice basics will be covered.

In this training, we will explain what phonics is, take a closer look at why phonics is essential to the teaching of early reading and debunk complex phonics terminology. We will look at the skills and strategies used to teach phonics and discover why the order of sounds is so important. We will also look at how you can adapt your school's teaching to the phonics scheme you are using. There will be plenty of time to address any questions you may have about phonics.
