Local schools benefit from the latest Phonics teaching techniques
One of the key benefits from of securing one of 12 places in the Department of Education’s flagship Opportunity Area Programme was that local schools could benefit from the latest teaching techniques. Last month 23 representatives from schools across the Opportunity Area visited the New Wave English Hub in Hackney for a Phonics Showcase event. The day included a learning walk of a phonics intervention in practice and informative sessions on ‘Reading for Pleasure’ and ‘Vocabulary in the EYFS’. Attendees saw phonics teaching across several year groups by teachers and teaching assistants. The visit coupled with optional one-to-one consultation will enable schools to improve their provision of phonics ensuring that children locally get the best educational start. Schools in Fenland found the event ‘very inspiring’.
