Teacher's Making a Difference - Mr Thorne's Phonics

The unsung heroes and heroines of education are those very many teachers that have really gone that extra mile to make a difference to their children's learning. Through the wonders of the Internet we are able to share and celebrate their good work. 

Here is one example of a teacher who has really put some thought and effort into teaching his kids the fundamentals of phonics. Fantastic!

Christopher Thorne is a Year 1 Teacher at a North London school in the UK. He has produced over 200 videos to help with the teaching of phonics which he hosts on his website at  It's an excellent resource for children and parents, teachers and schools and anyone with English as a second language.

At present, there are approximately 200 videos on his Youtube channel, which have been viewed over 300,000 times! The videos cover a wide range of literacy concepts, some examples include short vowel sounds, consonant sounds and adjectives:-

Keep up the fantastic work Mr Thorne!
