Michelle Larbey

Primary English Consultant and the Phonic Fairy


Developed by Michelle Larbey

A lifelong love of books. We learn to read, and read to learn. This is easy to say, but how can we teach reading in a way that will inspire our children to be lifelong lovers of literature? It’s simple – we instil a sense of awe and wonder around books and we provide children with memorable experiences which connect learning to read with pleasure. At the heart of StoryTime Phonics we instil a love of books and then contextualise the learning of phonics making learning to read meaningful and memorable.

Story Time Phonics was developed by Michelle Larbey and is published by the TTS Group
