P1 pupils have now received their reading folder which contains a Jolly Phonics sounds booklet. Please keep the booklet safe in the reading folder and use it at home to practise the sounds we have already learned. This will help with reading and writing. So far we have learned up to the "th" sound and will be working on ‘ng’. Next week.
In class the children learn the action along with a song (these can be found on You Tube or on previous class blog literacy posts). Learning the action and sound together helps with recognition when it comes to reading sounds then blending the sounds together to read words.
We use Jolly Phonics at school, as well as lots of other resources but there are lots of games which you can play at home to support learning. Games such as eye spy or sound treasure hunts are great fun to do when out and about or at home.
