"I enjoyed watching the coaching sessions, as they helped me to see how effective coaching ‘in the moment’ can be. I will use the coaching ‘check list’ to ensure all of these points are covered effectively during phonics sessions."

"Thank you so much for the session tonight. It was very informative and I look forward to introducing practice and coaching sessions. I will definitely be signing up for more."

"I found the focus on the practise sessions very useful as this is an area I now need to focus on."

"Very well run training session - just the right amount of info given - Thank you"

"I particularly enjoyed the teaching videos, and videos on coaching - I've already put this into practice" 

"I really liked the example videos and sharing of questions on Slido made it more collaborative"

"Thank you so much for the training last night, I found it very beneficial" 


Thank you to everyone who attended our Leading Excellence in Phonics Training. Please find the powerpoint below. You can find the training videos on the Lacey Green English Hub Youtube Channel.
