Valma Adams has considerable teaching experience in both Cape Town and the UK. She first used Jolly Phonics in 2002, teaching in Birmingham, continuing with it on after returning to Cape Town. She consistently sees her pupils enjoying the learning the skills and quickly reading and writing form using Jolly Phonics. They want to write stories and read aloud it to anyone who will listen!
Valma has spent the last few years working closely with a team of trainers in South Africa and with Universal Learning Solutions to support the adoption of the programme in the Western Cape.
