Today, Friday 6 March, I visited Phonic Stars in Coney Hall Assembly Rooms. It is a playgroup run by Sam Baldwin which aims to develop skills in pre-school children - particularly reading.
Having been briefed on how the playgroup worked I took part in a few activities - photograph with the parachute - and saw just how much the kids were enjoying themselves. They were learning without realising it. I must say I was very impressed. Sam has franchised her approach and it it taking off nationwide. I will do what I can to help that.
