At Asquith we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' programme. Discreet phonics sessions are taught daily and are fun and multi-sensory to appeal to different learning styles within our cohort. We use 'Jolly Phonics' to help the children learn the first 42 sounds via songs and actions.
Each child has a sound mat in their reading record so that you are able to revise the letter sounds at home with your child.
Jolly Phonics Letter Sounds
Enjoy listening to the Jolly Phonics songs at home that we use in class to help us remember the letter sounds.
How to pronounce letter sounds correctly.
Alphablocks on Cbeebies or YouTube can be a great way to revise letter sounds that we have learnt in class. Click on the link below or type 'Alphablocks' and the specific sound you are wanting to revise on YouTube.
Here are some songs we enjoy singing to when learning the Alphabet...
Learning Tricky words
Sing the tricky word song with us!
We can't sound out tricky words as they wouldn't make sense...this is why they are very tricky!
The first words we will learn to read by sight and memory are: the, I, go, no, into, to, and, is, it.
Please help us at home to recognise these words by sight. There might be tricky words in our reading books that we can point out, or even in our favourite story books at home. We love singing this song to help us learn the words.
