Jolly Phonics training
In day 1 of this two day workshop, we take an in depth look at the best way to teach synthetic phonics systematically with the Jolly Phonics curriculum. We will cover:
- the 5 skills that students must master in order to begin reading
- the stories and gestures that support learning the letter sounds 
- what synthetic phonics is and how it compares to other methods of teaching reading and writing 
- share practical activity ideas for in the classroom and at home
Participants will also practice demonstration lessons where they will act as teachers in groups of 2-3, practice model Jolly Phonics lessons and give feedback to each other. The accredited Jolly Phonics trainer will also give feedback to participants about what they are doing well in the lessons, and what they should change to make Jolly Phonics more effective in their teaching to make sure that everyone is ready to use what they learn in this workshop with their students the following week!

This training will follow up from Part 1 and look in depth at teaching alternate spellings of sounds and how to continue to prepare students for moving into Jolly Grammar. This will cover the 94 lessons that should follow after learning the first 42 sounds spellings taught in Jolly Phonics (Student Books 2 & 3), and show how to structure each lesson. We will cover activity ideas and explore how to bring worksheets to life in class.
