We have been working on Phase 1 in Phonics. Our focus the first week was General Sound Discrimination. The children went on listening walks, made sound makers with crisps, keys, coins etc and played listening games to guide family to find hidden objects. Our sound of the week was ‘l’. In week 2 we focused on Instrumental Sounds which meant lots of instruments were played. Our sound of the week was ‘f’. In week 3 we were focusing on body percussion and our sound was ‘s’. We learnt about rhythm and rhyme in week 4, playing matching games, going on a rhyming object hunt and making rhyming soup. The sound of the week was 'a'. In Week 5, we looked at aspect 5 (Alliteration). The children went on letter sound hunt, helped Zoe the Zoekeeper name her animals and made alliterative silly soup. Our sound of the week was 't'.
