Simply Phonics is a fully planned phonics programme integrating oral language, spelling patterns, phonics, writing and reading.
The Simply Phonics Model highlights the fact that there is an incremental sequence for teaching phonics. Phonics only adds value to children's spelling when their teachers are super confident and knowledgeable in all areas of phonics.
By the end of the 2 days all teachers will leave with a significant boost in their knowledge, passion and skills in teaching phonics.
As an added bonus:
This will be the most inspirational, fun and multi-sensory workshop of the year!
