The first workshop, which will take place on January 21 is now booking. Entitled 'Cracking the code: phonics and high frequency words for beginner readers', it will explore how to help and support a child during the first stages of reading. Phonics, difficult words and helpful books and websites will also be discussed.
The final two workshops will take place on February 11 and March 3. All of them will run from 7.30 p.m. until 9 p.m.
