At preschool we teach the children who will be starting primary school in the next academic year, phase 2 phonics. We use the Read, Write Inc phonics scheme and focus on the sound of each letter and the way each letter is formed. Our phonics session last 10-15 minutes and we use lots of fun and engaging ways to teach the children pure sounds.
What are pure sounds? Pure sounds are the sound each letter of the alphabet makes. For example ‘m’ is a stretchy mmmmmm sound not a ‘muh’ sounds. To hear each pure sound click here.
