Jolly Phonics is a fun, child-centered, multi-sensory approach to teaching English literacy. The programme uses a synthetic phonics approach and teaches children the five key skills for reading and writing. Independent research has found that, after one year's teaching, children taught with Jolly Phonics have an average reading and spelling age around 12 months ahead of their actual age. The programme suits both English native and non-native speaking pupils. It ensures that children understand how to read, write and speak English. It furthermore supports the development of good English pronunciation and a wide English vocabulary.
Chris is the Managing Director and owner of Jolly Learning Ltd. which published the first part of the Jolly Phonics programme in 1992. Since then he has been passionately pursuing the programme's implementation in schools across the world. During the workshop at Harrow Beijing Chris introduced the essential elements of the Jolly Phonics programme and how to achieve outstanding pupil results. The workshop was for teachers from the wider Beijing community.
In order for parents to better understand what is happening in Harrow Beijing classrooms and to enable parents to help their children at home our accredited Jolly Phonics trainer and Head of Early Years Ms Franziska Herning will give a session for parents on 7th September at 8.30am in the Lecture Theatre. This session will give parents an insight into the way phonics is used in our classrooms and how parents can help their children outside of the classroom.
