Parents' Phonics Workshop
Learning to read is a challenging process for everyone – especially as the way children are now taught how to read is different to how we, their parents, remember. The aim of this one-off session is to help parents and carers really understand the basics of phonics; this is so they can feel confident supporting their child with the early stages of reading and writing.
These online workshops equip parents with the skills, knowledge and practical strategies to help their children with their letters and sounds. Children need to be able to link sounds to written letters. The workshops are aimed at parents of children aged 3+ whose children are in the nursery or reception. It is suitable for parents with children in Year 1 too.
Date: By arrangement to suit
Time: 7 pm (1 hour and a half approximately)
Other: Online and there will be no more than 8 participants
Following the purchase of this workshop Emily will be in contact to arrange a date and time that suits you.
About Emily Jack:
Emily Jack, a mother and former Director of The Tutors’ Association, trained as a teacher and started a tutoring business because she is passionate about children’s education. Her business helped 1000’s of families across the globe with tutoring and school consultancy. She noticed that too many children did not have the support they needed to pass the increasingly competitive school entrance examinations or the support to cope with the pressure put upon them. This is an issue that is close to her heart. Emily strongly believes that one to one teaching sessions can be something that can work alongside formal education and that it focuses on individual styles of learning.
This is why, following the sale of her business, Emily started working as Head of Schools at Bookmark Reading Charity. Bookmark is a young charity with a fresh approach. Its innovative, cost-effective digital platform matches schools with safeguarded, vetted and trained reading volunteers in addition to offering other services to assist with embedding a whole school reading culture in schools. According to the Department for Education, one in four children currently leaves primary school unable to read well in England.
