⭐️⭐️ EXCITING NEWS!! ⭐️⭐️
📚 Virtual Story Frog Phonics classes for Pre-school, Reception and Year 1 children!! 📚
I have two types of class available for Reception and Year 1 children:
🐸 In these classes we will recap initial sounds and learn two new sounds per week. We will practise reading and writing three and four letter words and captions. Tricky words will be introduced and there will be a story and games. (These classes are perfect for children who are at an “almost reading/ just reading” level). Open to children in Nursery, Reception and up! No age limit!!
🐸 In these classes we will start learning more complex sounds, tricky words and reading with more fluency. We will practise reading and writing longer sentences and children will begin to read for meaning and pleasure. There will be a story and games linked to the new sound. Open to children from Reception and up! No age limit!!
Places will be limited, as classes will be taught in small groups of no more than six children.
There will be two of each class per week. You can choose whether you would like your child to do one or two.
The cost of classes is as follows:
One class per week- £6
Two classes per week- £11
⭐️ If you sign your child up for the remainder of the half term block for two classes per week, the price is £5 per class.
⭐️ Included for all children- a 1:1 phonics assessment prior to commencing classes to determine a starting point for classes, and whether they are a bullfrog or a hopper!!
Classes are on Tuesdays at 10:00am or 11:00am and Fridays at 10:00am or 11:00am, depending on ability.
(More classes will be arranged when these classes fill up!)
📚 I am also doing 1:1 classes for Reception and Year 1 children. These classes offer a learning experience, which is tailored to your child’s individual needs and cost £12 per 30 minutes. 📚
💝 Pre-school classes are aimed at 2-4 year olds. 💝
Online preschool classes take place LIVE on Zoom, on Tuesday mornings at 9:30am and Friday afternoons at 2:00pm. They last for 20 minutes and cost £4 each
Each class consists of:
🌻 phonic sounds
🌻movement and music
🌻fine motor activities
🌻ideas for activities at home
🐸 As always, I will bring the usual Story Frog fun and laughter to all of my classes. I strongly believe that children learn more when they are happy and at ease.
If you would like more information about any of the classes, or you would like to book your child a place, please get in touch.

Hello everyone! I’m Quita
I am absolutely delighted to be starting Story Frog classes in Wakefield and the surrounding area.
I have always loved to read and it is a passion that I have passed on to my wonderful little bookworm daughter, Hannah. (Not so little anymore, she’s just turned 13!! Yikes. Where did the time go?)
I am an experienced primary school teacher and I have been working in Early Years settings for the past 10 years. I absolutely love working with young children and their families and it makes me so happy when I can inspire and nurture a love of stories and reading through my teaching.
I joined the Story Frog team because I want to combine my love of books with my desire to help children and parents to understand phonics in a fun and engaging way.
Learning to read should be made fun and exciting but too often it causes stress and children can become demotivated. It can be stressful for parents too! Some of us didn’t get taught phonics at school and it sounds like a foreign language when children come home, talking about “phonemes” and “digraphs”!
This is where Story Frog can help you!
Together we can make reading fun again!!
The aim of our sessions is to develop a love of stories and to introduce the earliest elements of phonics and literacy in a play based way. The Story Frog sessions are a fantastic way to introduce your child to the phonic knowledge that they will need to become confident readers and writers.
The sessions will be creative, exploratory, exciting, sensory, sometimes messy….always lots of fun!!
I look forward to meeting you and your little ones!

My son, Harry has been doing online lessons with Quita whilst in lockdown. She is brilliant & had tailored the lessons specifically to his ability. He has progressed so much in just a few weeks & it’s nice for him to have some 1-on-1 learning time whilst he is not at school. Quita is a fab teacher, very friendly, relaxed & knowledgable! Thank you xx
