Teaching Phonics: The Basics CPD Session!

This informative, engaging CPD session is intended to offer a valuable introduction to phonics for teachers and support staff. It aims to enable participants to:
-To understand what phonics are and understand why they are widely used;
-To grasp key phonics terminology and apply it in different contexts;
-To break down the key phonics stages, comprehending how skills develop.

The session is aimed at those who are new to phonics. I myself moved from secondary to primary, and can understand how daunting phonics schemes can appear! These resources, whilst detailed, present ideas in a simple way, helping to make key ideas understandable. Included is:

  • A 27-slide colourful, clear PowerPoint presentation, including post-CPD quiz;
  • Resources for an optional card-sorting activity, to learn appropriate phonics terminology;
  • A comprehensive phonics helpsheet, detailing most of the main points from the session.

I hope that you find these resources helpful. Many thanks!
