Announcement: Exciting News!
Are you intrigued by the prospect of conducting small group sessions aimed at cultivating the essential vocabulary and orthographic knowledge required if children are to become skilled readers? Moreover, these sessions are designed to instil a genuine passion for reading, driven by engaging content: reading The Village with Three Corners series! Make sure to bookmark the READIES page as we are set to launch in November. This program is ideally suited for KS1 children who have progressed to Phase 3 in Letters and Sounds/ the end of Speech Sound Pics Approach Purple Code Level. It's important to note that these sessions operate independently of explicit and systematic phonics instruction, and their compatibility extends to any SSP program you may be utilising.

The teacher doesn't need to be at the front 'teaching' spelling choices. Shift towards a 'concept driven' approach, and make sure the reference materials children may need at any given time (you don't know what they will be writing!) are there.
