The children will start to learn their letter sounds by using Jolly Phonics.
Each letter has an action which helps them remember the letter. We start with the group of letters s.a.t.p.i.n. These letters make more simple three letter words than any other six letters.
The rhymes and actions we use
are as follows:-
s – Weave hand in an s shape,
and say sssss
a – Wiggle finger above elbow
as if ants crawling on you
and say a, a, a.
t – Turn head from side to side
as if watching tennis and
say t, t, t.
p – Pretend to puff out candles
and say p, p, p.
i - Pretend to be a mouse by wriggling fingers at
the end of nose and squeak i, i,
n – Make a noise, as if you are a plane – hold
arms out and say nnnnn.
