10/10. Lots of new ideas to use during phonics interventions that the children will enjoy

10/10. All activities were new, exciting and included resources that we already have in school. I found it really informed and found David very enthusiastic. Couldn’t get any better – excellent delivery

10/10. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Learning can be so much fun. Great ideas that can be taken and put into action. A great morning
