In nursery, we have started to learn our set 1 phonics sounds. We follow the Read Write Inc. scheme for phonics. In RWI, each sound has a picture card and a rhyme to help write the sound. Your child will be familiar with letter names from learning the alphabet song. In phonics lessons we talk about the sound and the rhyme to help us write that sound. In nursery, we will be focusing on the children pronouncing the sound correctly. The children will be given opportunities to mark make and form the sound throughout their play e.g. painting in glitter, writing with chalk, forming the sound with loose items.
Clear pronunciation of sounds is extremely important. This video will demonstrate how to say sounds clearly.
