                    This has given me a fantastically informative intro to Y2 SATs.  I now know what skills the children need to learn and how to deliver these in a more engaging manner.  Debs never stopped giving advice – thanks!

                    The course was an eye opener to phonics for the screening check.  Debs was fab. I would recommend the course to EYFS and Y2 to help develop knowledge.
