This course will support practitioners to understand what phonics teaching should look like in pre-school settings and help you to gain confidence in delivering effective phonics activities for three and four year olds.
A good standard of reading and writing are fundamental for children to succeed in education and their adult lives. “Phonics” is always a major topic of discussion in education.
How do we ensure children are equipped and ready to take on the demands of this aspect of their education?
We play a vital role in supporting children to be ready for the next stage of their education and therefore it is important that our input is correct and that we do not miss vital elements that children need in order to be successful.
This course will examine stages of development and support practitioners to ensure that the children in their care develop a solid ‘bedrock’ upon which to build their reading skills.
Course contents include:
- Recognising the importance of developing phonics skills for young children
- Clarifying the types of phonics activities suitable for pre-school children
- Developing confidence in introducing phonics through daily activities
- Identifying good practice and idea sharing for effective phonic activities
