Setting the foundations of phonics (for beginners)
Gill Budgell studied English and Education at degree level and then took the RSA Diploma in TESL, having realised she was ill-equipped to cope with the needs of blingual pupils in her primary classroom. And so a life-long interest in language teaching began.
She has been series editor and author on a number of projects including the best-selling handwriting course, Penpals for Handwriting and has more recently contributed to the ever-popular Macmillan Explorers programme.
Join our phonics specialist Gill Budgell deliver an informative webinar for those new to synthetic phonics:
- Introduction to the core principles of synthetic phonics
- Strategies to understand and implement synthetic phonics into the primary classroom
