September Start

I'm now taking names down for a September start.  Limited spaces available due to small groups.  Contact me via my contact page to find out more or to book your space.

Parent and pre-school phonic sessions (Suitable for 3 and 4 year olds)

These sessions introduce parents and children to phonics through fun, active, play based activities and games. The interactive, multisensory games and activities develop children’s literacy skills through play. Focusing on speaking and listening skills and letter sounds.  Sessions will help to install a love of books and build strong foundations for reading and writing.  Children take part in the activities together in small groups, working on communication skills and having fun whilst being blissfully unaware that they are learning.  The groups are kept small (no more than 5 children in a group) as the sessions are planned according to the children’s needs, learning styles and interests. The sessions run in blocks which run in line with school term dates. Each block of sessions is between 4-7 weeks long.  Each session lasts 45 minutes and is packed with lots of different activities to keep the little ones engaged!

In the sessions children will be encouraged to develop a love of learning and be motivated to explore sounds! They will become familiar with alliteration, rhythm and rhyme and will take part in many activities which will work on their fine motor skills and co-ordination.  The sessions are suitable for children aged 3 and 4 years old, with little or no phonic knowledge.  These sessions also empower parents and equip them with the skills and ideas to support their child further through play, as they will learn about the early stages of phonics and will be able to play many of the games and activities at home too. 

Maths Booster Sessions (Suitable for primary school children)
