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've absolutely loved our Phonics Fox sessions and can't recommend them highly enough!
It has been about more than just learning sounds. It has nurtured a complete love of learning new things and sparked my daughter's imagination through dance, songs, movement, play- all with plenty of paint, glitter, glue and play dough along the way!
It has been the perfect way to spend a special morning together with my youngest each week, especially when we couldn't do things like this together when she was smaller, due to lockdowns and restrictions. Also gives you so many ideas for how to make play more meaningful at home.
Kate is incredible and totally inspiring. You won't regret booking in!
