It's the Rising Stars Reading Conference 2019 next week and I've got a speaking slot. My talk is only 45 minutes long so I'm getting some extra information down in video and blog clips in preparation that people can find out more afterwards if they want to.

'Schools that are already successful with phonics are auditing themselves to see if practice could be even better.'
