Reading with our year 6 buddies!

We have started to learn our letter sounds/phonemes. We use 'Jolly Phonics' to support the teaching of phonics. It is a fun approch, which the children really enjoy. It has a picture, action and song to accompany each phoneme. You can find the songs on 'youtube'. We learn the letter shape, find things beginning with the sound and how to form the shape. We try to find something to eat beginning with the sound too! We aim to eat our way through the alphabet!
