This workshop, aimed at both specialist and non-specialist musicians, is an essential guide to using music and singing to develop phonics and literacy when teaching children aged 3 – 7.

There is much research available to show that music and speech share a number of the same processing systems, and that active engagement with music aids the brain’s early encoding of linguistic sounds. Phonemic awareness, speech processing, reading comprehension, recall of verbal information – all have been shown to benefit from musical training. This workshop, aimed at both specialist and non-specialist musicians, is an essential guide to using music and singing to develop phonics and literacy when teaching children aged 3 – 7.

Included In This Session:

  • A comprehensive guide to using music to enhance the teaching and learning of phonics and literacy.
  • Developing listening skills and phonological awareness; relationship between sounds and symbols; rhythm and rhyme; alliteration, oral blending and segmenting.
  • Literacy elements: alphabet; vocabulary development; features of language (onomatopoeia, verbs, homophones, etc.)
  • Creativity in language and story-telling.

Time permitting, the workshop will also include:

An introduction to Words on Screen™, our easy-to-use software, which guarantees that any teacher, no matter what their musical ability, will feel confident teaching songs and delivering great-quality music resources across the school curriculum.
