YR:

'I just wanted to say a huge thanks for the two sessions you've done with us at school. We have completely re-written a phonics curriculum with your help and ideas and the change we have seen in the reception children already is incredible. I actually enjoy teaching phonics now too, as opposed to dreading it each day. Thanks!!'
Teacher, Brent

‘Children are able to blend/segment much earlier than before therefore improving their reading/writing skills. Have not taught digraphs before in Reception, but this has proven to be very useful. Children’s knowledge of terminology also better.’
YR teacher, Ealing

‘Sounding/blending/segmenting – higher percentage of children are confident in these skills – particularly segmenting for writing’.
YR teacher, Ealing

About Lesley

I am a part time Y1 class teacher and part time literacy consultant (specialising in the teaching of phonics and guided reading). I am also the phonics lecturer on the PGCE course at Brunel University. These roles combine to give me a wonderful insight into what does and doesn’t work in developing children’s phonic knowledge and skills, as well as the support and resources practitioners, student teachers and parents are looking for.
