"Unlocking Potential"


Hi Yellow Class 

Here are some phonics ideas! We are largely working on phase one phonics in Yellow Class. We follow The Letters and Sounds scheme. 
Phase One of Letters and Sounds concentrates on developing children's speaking and listening skills and lays the foundations for the phonic work which starts in Phase 2. The emphasis during Phase 1 is to raise children's awareness of the sounds around them and to develop their listening skills. Activities suggested in the guidance include going on a listening walk and seeing what you can hear in your environment.

Here are some videos that may help you practise these skills at home smiley


Listening games - 

How to Play: Hone listening skills in a fun and interactive way. You could explore all of the sounds together first, then play the video at different points throughout. Pause the video and ask children to choose the correct object/picture that represents that sound. Or simply pass the child the correct object/picture. Then unpause and reveal. Repeat as many times as you like. Ideal as a starter for tuning into sounds.
