Fabulous Phase One Phonics - For Practitioners

This training is a short course on what phase one phonics is all about. I'm a firm believer that no-one should rush children through phase one just to get onto 'real sounds.' A firm foundation in phase one phonics will ensure children succeed in the further phases.

This is a short course which means it only gives brief information on what phase one is and activity to match. That being said, there is enough here to ensure you enrich your practice and don't feel like you've been sold short.

There is an activity download sheet which I give out in my real-world courses too which explains some of the other activities which you could implement in your setting. At the end of this course there is also a phonics assessment. 

Got a question? Email me on and I'll get back to you ASAP.
