Phonics: This term we will begin phase 2 of Jolly phonics. We will be leabring our phonics sounds, we will be starting with the sound ‘s’, ‘a’ and ‘t’. The children will be looking for objects beginning with these sound around in our envrionement and we will be making a sound box. We will also be practising the letter formation in lots of different textures for example flour, rice, lentils as well as using a pencil.
