Miss Alex has been introducing the children to Jolly Phonics using a variety of resources the children can access with the help of the teacher. It’s lovely to see how quickly and easily they pick this up, learning new letters each day. We are currently learning phase 1 (s, a, t, i, p, n).
With the help of worksheets we have also been practicing how to hold our pencil correctly and write our letters in lower case and upper case.
We have also been learning some Jolly Phonics songs, which help us to pronounce our sounds correctly and reading our phonics story book where we learn the adventures of each letter.
After this stage, we will move on to making words with the letters we have learnt and reading the words by using our phonic sounds to sound them out. If you’d like to know more about jolly phonics to support your child’s learning at home, please ask one of the staff!
