Read Write Inc Phonics Workshops

Phonics Workshop Powerpoint – Nov 2013On Wednesday 13th November we ran a Read Write Inc Phonics Workshop for parents. This was to support parents with their children’s learning and to show how we teach Phonics at Greenway School. The two sessions included practical elements such as practising using FRED fingers for spelling, FRED talk for blending and saying the sounds from set 1, 2 and 3. There was also an opportunity to watch a video clip of Miss Orr teaching a Read Write Inc lesson.

Here are some quotes from parents who attended the workshops:

‘I’ve been to the two previous ‘official’ Read Write Inc sessions and found this one easier to follow and more useful. Miss Orr is an inspiration. It’s wonderful to see such passion.’

 ‘Thank you for that really interesting session. Please run the session every year.’

 ‘Excellent presentation. Loved the movie clip of Miss Orr teaching – great to see a teacher in action, especially someone so passionate about their subject.’

 ‘I am so pleased I came today. I just didn’t realise how difficult it is. After today I have a better understanding of how to help my child.’

 ‘Loved the video of the children being taught! They were so engaged and having fun – very positive.’
