Phonics fun

Friday 06 October 2017

Your child may be coming home and singing lots of jolly phonics songs. We have learnt the sounds ‘s’, ‘a’ and ‘t’ this week. We are teaching the children to say the pure sound, for example, ‘ssss’ not ‘suh’ (try to avoid saying the ‘uh’ bit at the end).

We’re focusing on hearing the initial sound in words. We’ve sorted objects that began with ‘s’, ‘a’ and ‘t’. For example, ‘s’ for sock and ‘a’ for apple. Can you play ‘I spy’ with your child?

Please let us know about any WOW moments so we can celebrate them in class.
