Workshop F in Room Rise and Shine

Back to Basics

This workshop will explore practical ways to support those learners who are struggling to acquire basic reading and spelling skills. The session will look at phonics and a combination of other approaches to support children in making progress. In becoming confident at teaching the basics, we can ensure that we are supporting all children to gain fundamental skills for life.
