Learning through drama
"Absolutely everything to do with their phonics has improved!"
- Debi Wilkinson, Linton Mead Primary
Play Phonics brings learning to life through weekly fun-packed drama workshops.
Play Phonics is a supplementary resource, to be used in conjunction with any other systematic synthetic phonics teaching resource.
Through unique kinesthetic, auditory and visual techniques, our weekly workshops have been carefully designed to enrich your classroom teaching for Nursery, Reception and Year One pupils in and around London.
"Play Phonics has enriched the curriculum... We have more readers than ever before."
- Eleni Apostoli, Lea Valley Primary
"A valuable learning experience for any child."
- Vivian Tuck, Carpenters Primary
Over a course of weekly sessions, a talented actor-teacher will come to your school, and as the character 'Sammy Sounds' they will introduce sounds, eventually covering a whole phase. Through drama and interactive fun pupils will be given the tools to blend, segment and decode words.
Closing the gap
At Play Phonics we believe in making sure that every child reaches their true potential. Play Phonics has been deigned to close the attainment gap among pupils, which is why many of our schools feel that it is a good use of pupil premium money.
We understand that children learn in very different ways, and for some a more active, dramatic approach is the key to boosting confidence, retaining knowledge and propelling their learning journey.
In your school
We work closely with schools to ensure that we get to know pupils and their particular educational needs; enabling us to differentiate within our sessions. Workshops require a minimal set up from schools - we simply need a hall, gym or classroom space.
"You cover phonics from every angle - visually, kinesthetically, auditorily - it's super!"
- Emma Harper, Iqra Primary School
