What we learn in Pre-School
We follow the schools phonic program: Twinkl phonics.
As a guide each term we have a main focus which is set our below, however using Twinkl phonics ensure we incorporates all aspects of phase 1 phonics throughout the year.
Listening and attention skills- We play games, and go on listening walks to hear the different sounds in the environment.
Rhyming and initial sounds- We begin to focus further on learning new nursery rhymes and then progress onto making single words rhyme such as our name.
Alliteration and orally blending sounds- Here we focus on the initial sounds of our names and look at what other words sound the same i.e. Silly Sally. We then begin to orally blend sounds into simple words i.e. c a t cat
