About this Event

At our Open Events see the teaching of early language and reading, including phonics, in the EYFS and KS1.

Observe:

  • How language and English skills are embedded throughout school;
  • Best practice in action;
  • How to ensure that a love of reading is nurtured and developed throughout a child’s primary school years.

Take part:

  • Reflect on your own school's reading journey;
  • Time built in for action planning and next steps in accessing English Hub funding.

Inspirational Speaker, Primary English Specialist Kelly Ashley, is now confirmed for this event.
