Teaching Phonics


2 October 2020



It is essential that children are taught the phonic knowledge and skills that they require to read and write.  To teach phonics well, teachers need to have strong subject and curriculum knowledge.

During this course, participants will

  • develop an understanding of why phonics is so important for reading and spelling
  • develop phonics subject knowledge
  • develop understanding of the phonics curriculum progression
  • develop understanding of prompts that can be used with children to support them when they are decoding and spelling
