This online learning session is recorded to support a teacher to access it on demand for 30 days from the release date. It provides rich opportunity for practical engagement and reflection which will support implementation in the classroom.

Build knowledge and understanding in how to teach phonics in the context of a rich reading curriculum to support children in Key Stage 1 to use and apply it in their reading and writing; whichever validated scheme your school may be using.

What you will learn:

  • An introduction into how phonic knowledge develops across Key Stage 1, from phonemic knowledge to exploration of alternative pronunciations, graphemes and spelling patterns;
  • An overview of the core features of an effective systematic phonics programme and the associated subject knowledge and the key teaching approaches and strategies that support readers and writers in Key Stage 1;
  • How to choose and use quality children’s literature to support children's use and application of phonics in their reading and writing in Key Stage 1.

All elements of the training are in line with the requirements of the National Curriculum.

This online learning session is part of a three-session package of webinars which provide participants with an introduction to the CLPE book-based approach to teaching phonics across EYFS and KS1 and into KS2 for those children needing further support. Schools can either book leaders on to all three sessions for a complete overview, or book individual teachers on to the sessions that applies to the phases they teach.

What you will receive:

  • 30 day access to a recording of the online session;
  • a handout of the presentation slides;
  • a free Power of Reading teaching sequence as well as a free 'Take 5' home learning resource, supporting immediate implementation at school.

Online learning session price is per person.

Participants receive a pre-registration email three days before the release date with details on how to access the online learning session. If you need support, please email [email protected].
