The children have been brilliant learning their sounds this term and they have learnt actions to support them with remembering these. These actions help them show what their mouth and tongue are doing when they are saying the sound.
Here is a video to show you the actions so you can support your child with these.
There is another video of the jolly Phonics songs that the children have enjoyed singing.
We have been doing lots of listening in our Phonics sessions over the last 4 weeks including hearing and making loud, quiet, quick and slow sounds. We began blending sounds together to make whole words (pushing the sounds c - a - t together to hear the word cat. Blending helps with reading) and segmenting whole words into their sounds (breaking dog into the 3 sounds d - o - g. Segmenting helps with spelling words).
Here is a video to watch that shows you how to say the sound (phoneme) that each letter represents (grapheme).
Welcome to all of our new Reception children. They have done brilliantly settling in over the last 4 weeks and have had fun inside the classroom and outside in our Early Years garden.
