The training will enable NQTs to understand the theory behind the teaching of Phonics. They will get an overview of the six phonic phases and key information related to each phase. They will be able to use and develop activity ideas; progressing from simple sounds through to the most complex.
The session will include guidance on planning and assessment. There will also be an opportunity to observe a phonics lesson with a small group of pupils and a chance to engage in a follow up discussion.
NQTs will further develop an understanding of how a structured approach is an effective way of teaching reading. Phonics Screening will be discussed briefly.
