The Phonics Fox® - Central Cornwall
Hello! I’m Kate and I’m excited to be bringing The Phonics Fox® classes to Cornwall.
I am an experienced primary teacher, having taught for almost twenty years across Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. I have experience of leading Early Years across a school and nursery for ten years and also spent time as phonics lead.
There are many things I love about working with young children: giving them the skills to be confident and independent learners, immersing ourselves in stories and being part of those lightbulb moments when children are learning to read. I feel like teaching a child to read is like giving them a gift which opens up an exciting and powerful world.
I also love the idea of empowering parents and carers to be able to effectively support their child in their journey towards becoming a reader and a writer.
I am a firm believer in hands on learning and developing the whole child. I think The Phonics Fox® classes offer a brilliant balance between fun, creativity and learning, catering for a range of needs.
We are so sad it’s over! Thank you so much for a brilliant six weeks. Leandro has learned so much and his confidence in writing has been amazing! Before we started, he wouldn’t even pick up a pen or pencil and try to write as he would get frustrated, but now he can hold it correctly and has even managed to write the letters he has learned!
Thank you, Alanna. You were amazing!
