Bright Light Phonics is a fun-filled session that supports children with their phonics, reading and writing skills. Children will consolidate their understanding of the sounds that letters make, building confidence in blending and segmenting these phonemes. During the sessions, the children will practise reading and writing, together with learning some of the ‘tricky’ words as well.
Bright Light Phonics is not just beneficial for children; it also supports parents and guides them in how to help their children with reading and writing on a day-to-day basis. We encourage the parents to sit beside the child during the online lesson, so that parents also feel more confident with phonics!
“This year is not like any other year. It’s the most challenging year we all have faced. Still in this challenging year, through an online class, Bright Light Education always make lessons fun and entertaining. My daughter can’t wait to attend her online phonics lesson. I am really happy to have a lesson with her for my daughter.” (Kriti, parent)

Ages of children: The course is generally for 4-6 year olds. In the UK, the course is geared towards Reception aged children (4-5 year olds) but we very much welcome year 1 children who need further support in phonics.
For children learning English as an additional language, older children can also benefit.
