During the Covid 19 pandemic many of us may be feeling concerned about our child's transition to Primary School and how best to support this considerable change. Partculalry considering many of our children have not been able to attend Preschool/ Nursery as normal. This course will equip you with all you need to know about Phonics and Reading and how best to support your child.

"An excellent workshop run by two very knowledgeable and passionate people. Would highly recommend to any parents of children about to start Reception/ Year 1."

Kelley, Petersfield

Let us guide you through key terminology, techniques and fun activities to arm you with all you will need to make your child’s start on this journey a success!
We are two former Deputy Head teachers who have worked in Ofsted “outstanding” rated schools. Being  parents of little ones ourselves,we can guarantee all our methods are tried and tested!

You will come away knowing:

  • Exactly how phonics is taught in schools.

  • The key terms that your child (and their teacher) will use.

  • The sounds that individual phonemes make.

  • How to help your child phonetically decode words.

  • The difference between words that can be phonetically decoded and 'tricky words'

  • Fun games to play with your child to reinforce key words.

  • Questioning techniques to check your child's understanding of what they have read and much more!

  • You will also have emailed a resource pack of activities and information to use with your child at home, including: key word flash cards,a list of recommended websites that are tried and tested, phonics phase mats, questioning techniques to check your child's understanding of what they have read and much more! 

A teacher is doing well if they manage to listen to your child read once a week. It is recommended that we listen to our children read every day (but more realistically perhaps 4 times a week). This is 4 times more than their class teacher will do. Therefore it is vital that we understand how to best support our children with their reading and phonics journey. 


Join us on our Supporting Phonics and Reading Online Course, to ensure you understand all the best techniques to support your child with their phonics and reading journey. You can make a huge difference.


We'd love to see you there!

"Really insightful and relaxed introduction to phonics and how to support my child in their learning. Lots of fabulous tools and resources to take away and Nicky and Ellie were so lovely and helpful. Will definitely keep an eye out for more classes as this one was invaluable!"

"A great introduction to how phonics is taught and how you can support your child(ren). Would recommend that all parents of 3/4 year olds attend."Rachel  - Farnham

"Highly recommend the phonics course to parents as an introduction on how to support your child's learning at home. It brought a whole new insight to me about how kids learn at preschool/school too and I certainly didn't learn this way. Very informative with excellent guidance from Nicky and Ellie. I am now a fan and will definitely be keeping up to date with Edvanced for more helpful tips/attending more sessions in the future." Thank you! Deepi - Haslemere
