THE WORKSHOP OFFERS LOTS OF PRACTICAL IDEAS FOR HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR CHILD'S DEVELOPMENT IN THIS AREA TOO.
PHONICS AND EARLY READING
This series of workshops follows on from our Getting Ready for Reading Workshop. They are appropriate for all parents and carers of children, but particularly those whose children are in Reception or Year One.
Attendees sign up to attend all sessions and together they cover the teaching of phonics and early reading and writing in our school. The sessions include the opportunity to play some of the phonics games we play in class and will help attendees to feel more confident about supporting their child with their reading and writing development effectively and in a fun way at home.
