Phonics and emergent writing

We are loving learning how to read of our sounds and tricky words so far. Geraldine the phonics giraffe helps us to hear, read and say the phoneme or digraph of the day. We love practising how to write our sound of the day in multi coloured sand, on activity sheets, in bright chalk outside and on our big class whiteboard. Mrs Lumsden teaches us our sounds using lots of different funny voices before showing us what they look like! We have covered lots of themes so far this year, Autumn, Julia Donaldson, On the Farm and colour and light to name a few. We are working our way through reading and spelling our phase 3 tricky words now and cannot wait to learn more.
