On 19 September 2023, parents and carers of our Pre-Prep and EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) students went ‘back to school’ for the morning to learn how phonics is delivered at St Edmund’s College & Prep School.

The ‘Phonics Curriculum Morning’ was expertly led by Mrs Penfold and Mrs Colley and proved extremely popular, with a packed-out hall full of eager-to-learn participants.

Delivering an informative presentation to a highly engaged audience, Mrs Penfold and Mrs Colley talked through synthetic phonics, consonant, vowel, consonant (CVC) and tricky words, with the unfamiliar becoming more familiar over the course of the session.

It remains of vital importance to us to work in close partnership with our parents and carers to support our students’ learning journeys. We would like to thank staff members for welcoming, planning and preparing for this beneficial session and all the parents and carers who attended and supported our team with this informative session.
