An entertaining, interactive class, where parents accompany their children, helping to teach correct pronunciation and develop a love of letters and sounds from an early age.
Suitable for children as young as 2 years old.
Each phonics4fun! session is divided into 4 key stations: Tasting, Games, Toys and Craft. Following the introduction of the letter to be learned, children are split off, with their parent, to the different tables and rotated round the stations. There is a further 10 minute group time at the end, with a relevant story and song to round off the session.
Aims of phonics4fun! sessions:
- Familiarise both parents and children with Phonics, which is recommended as the first strategy that children should be taught in helping them learn to read.
- Teach the correct pronunciation of each sound, avoiding common errors
- Help develop listening skills, enabling the child to hear sounds at the beginning of words, thus starting to teach the elements of spelling.
- Practise patience, taking turns and listening in a group.
A positive early learning experience to instil a love of letters and sounds. See our website for photos and films of our classes in action.
