Samantha Sewell-Jones, of Romford, is starting Sounds Right Phonics Classes for Kids across Havering in September.

She said: "As an ex-primary school educator I think [the classes] are a brilliant way to introduce letters and sounds to children and help prepare them for school.

"I can't wait to get started."

The classes which are specifically designed to get pre-schoolers and toddlers interested in early reading and writing skills, was started in 2016 by sisters Charlie Day and Alex Burnside.

Children from ages one to five will work on their fine and gross motor skills and are introduced to a different letter sound each week in the sessions.

Charlie added: "Samantha is extremely hard working and has lots of experience teaching phonics to young children, I know that her classes will do extremely well and we are ecstatic to have her onboard our Sounds Right Phonics team."

The classes will take place in The Mercury Mall, Romford, St Laurence Church in Corbets Tey Road, Upminster, St Matthews Church, Chelmsford Drive, Upminster and Harold Wood Library in Arundel Road, Harold Wood.
