Funky Phonics at the Rainbow Factory
We can't wait for Funky Phonics to return this Autumn!
Ran by the amazing Leigh Burrow, who has a wealth of experience teaching children Phonics and supporting them to read in their early years – this course (or pay per session) helps children build a relationship between sounds and their spellings.
“The goal of phonics instruction is to teach children the most common sound-spelling relationships so that they can decode, or sound out, words. This decoding ability is a crucial element in reading success.” – Leigh Burrow
So whether you’re looking to help your child kick-start, give them a head start or support their learning, this course is ideal! All sessions follow the curriculum, following what the children will or are learning at school.
All sessions will be delivered in a fun and dynamic manner to support their engagement while learning.
