The Foundations of Phonics Training Session

Session Type

From the history of the alphabetic code to the research that underpins synthetic phonics, this course provides trainees with the knowledge and confidence required to teach outstanding phonics lessons. We’ll look at common misconceptions and examples of teaching practices that can hinder learning. Not only will trainees understand the meaning of terms like grapheme, phoneme, digraph and blending, they'll develop a deeper understanding of synthetic phonics and why it's the method we use in the classroom.
