Course description: This package of up to 5 sessions will equip schools with everything they need to successfully deliver, monitor and assess phonics.
Session one will explore each phase of phonic development as covered in the Letters and Sounds document and how this links to the development of early reading and spelling skills. Practical activities will be shared and support will be provided in order to drive forward standards.
Session two will further examine the Letters and Sounds document and the principles behind delivering a successful phonics programme. Models of exemplary teaching sessions will be shared with time for discussion and evaluation.
Session three will focus on using high quality, engaging texts to develop pupils’ phonic application in reading and writing. Assessment practices will be shared and pupils’ work will be examined in order to identify strength and provide support for next steps.
Session four will focus specifically on early phonics development, making links between the Letters and Sounds document and EYFS profile. Teaching models will be explored alongside exemplifications for application and activities to take back to school.
Session five will focus on the next stages of phonics development (phases 4&5), making links between the Letters and Sounds document and the National Curriculum. Suitable activities and models of teaching will be shared along with examples of application. This session will also focus on ensuring pupils are prepared for the Y1 Phonics Screening Check.
