KS1 Phonics Workshop

26th November 2014


Thank you to all of the parents who attended the Phonics Phase 1 to 5 activity session and workshop on Wednesday 26th November.  

It was lovely to see that it was so well supported and we hope that you gained some valuable information about what the synthetic Phonics programme involves, how it is taught and assessed, as well as ways in which you can support your child at home.  

The workshop primarily focused on phases 1 to 5, and aimed to outline research underpinning Phonics teaching, stimulating and challenging ways in which Phonics is taught at Hockley Primary School, and practical ideas for home support. An engaging video depicting Miss. Michael teaching a phase 3 session was shared and parents also had the opportunity to watch Miss. Sparkes  and Miss. Michael teach a live Phase 5 session, focusing on alternative pronunciations in the higher phases.

A parent support pack available at the workshop will soon be given out to those parents who were unable to attend. Further information can be found in the links to external sites on the presentation. However, if you have any questions about the teaching, assessment and required support of Phonics, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher for an appointment. 

Many thanks again for your continued support, 

Miss. Sparkes and Miss. Michael
