Whole School Phonics INSET.

When we wanted some training for all staff on Phonics/Letters and Sounds we asked around and seemed to be getting nowhere. With LAs being torn apart we were finding it hard finding anyone!

Then through both Dianne’s and mine PLN we came across Linda Percival (@ConsultantLinda on Twitter)- A National Strategies Advisor in the NW who was recommended to us.

WOW – What a great couple of INSET sessions and a great 2 hours tonight!

Well paced, targetted training that was interesting, fun, interactive and pitched at the right level! There was something for everyone.

I know that people have asked to be informed when great people give training, well I certainly recommend Linda! Her website is under construction and I’ll link it as soon as I can. I wanted to check that it wasn’t just me who was really into the training so I asked some TAs for their opinions!

“The training was pitched at a level that even though some people knew lots and some people knew a little we were all made to feel comfortable.”
Soraya Entwistle

“It was really interesting, we were moved quickly through different phases of letters and sounds and now I feel much more confident about delivering phonic sessions now.”
Julie Powell

    Linda’s website address leads me to a very odd page – possibly been hacked?
