We have begun to take part in daily phonics sessions. The aim of phonics is to teach children how to read and write. To begin with, we play lots of listening games, encouraging children to listen for environmental sounds and the initial sounds in words. Once children can hear sounds in words we begin to teach reading and writing words. In school we follow the Sounds Write programme. This half term we will learn unit 1 and 2 sounds (m, a, s, t, i, n, o, p).
