To be completed by: Fri 12 Apr 2019

Time: -Fri 12 Apr 2019 | Venue:

Our first two phonics and early reading showcases for schools in Bradford have been received really positively by teachers. Book now as we only have a few spaces left on the remaining free showcase mornings at Steeton Primary or Burley Woodhead Primary.

In the summer of 2018, the DfE designated 32 schools across the country as English Hubs.  Burley and Woodhead CE Primary in Burley-in-Wharfedale is one of four English Hubs based in Yorkshire. We cover Bradford, Craven, Richmondshire and Hambleton.  Burley Woodhead English Hub is delighted to announce further phonics and early reading half day showcases.  These free events are designed for us to work in partnership with you to evaluate what is working well in your current phonics and early reading teaching and what you could introduce to ensure all children become confident readers.

Outline of the morning

· Research-based approach to reviewing your current practice in school,

· Opportunities to see phonics being taught then applied through decodable books,

· Practical activities and sharing of good practice by Literacy Specialists from across Bradford and North Yorkshire,

· Review of resources available to teach phonics and early reading,

· Support with action planning (£500 will be paid to cover the cost of time to complete the action plan) with potential to access funding for further training and resources,

· Follow up email/telephone conversation with one of our Literacy Specialists following the event.
