PHONICS INFORMATION EVENING
A Phonics Information evening was
held at Pilling Primary School for parents of children in the Foundation Stage,
Nursery and Reception, on Wednesday 25 September 2013.
The evening was led by the Advisor
for Early Years Education, Vivienne Ward, who spoke to lots
of parents about how the teaching of Phonics helps children learn to read and
why parents’ help in this was essential for good progress. Parents were then
able to talk to Early Years staff, ask questions and participate in activities
their children would encounter in the classroom. The evening was very well
attended and ended with refreshments.
Director of Education and
Employment, Colin Moore said
“I am delighted that so
many parents attended this session. It is really important that parents can
follow up at home what our teachers work on with the children in school. It is
also very encouraging that so many parents are already asking for follow up
“By working together we can
really give children the best possible start to life.”
