Sound and Secure - Unpacking early phonics for 3 and 4 year olds (Full day webinar)

Event Code EYT 22/379
Event Description This course is for practitioners working with 3 and 4 year olds in the pre-school sector. It is unsuitable at those working with under 3s.

This highly interactive and enjoyable Enable Children course is designed to support you in ensuring that playful approaches to phonics are woven naturally throughout everyday practice and to maximise the phonological progress of 3 and 4 year olds. Content will include interesting, low-cost games, rhymes and songs with minimum preparation and maximum impact.

There is a focus on specific elements that challenge many practitioners including when and how to introduce letter sounds, correct letter pronunciation and “sounding out” words as well as exploring the expectations of schools and parents as children approach their reception year (NB No previous knowledge of phonological concepts or terminology is required.)

This webinar is hosted on Microsoft Teams. You must have access to a computer or tablet, a stable internet connection and a web camera to participate. Mobile phones are not suitable due to the small screen.
