Mrs Bollington

The children in Mrs Bollington's group are working within Phase 1 of Letters Sounds, covering all 7 aspects. These are described below. The children are also exposed to letter sounds from the Phase 2 work and are practicing the formation through experimental mark making.

 

Aspect 1: General sound discrimination – environmental sounds

 

To develop children’s listening skills and awareness of sounds in the environment

 

Aspect 2: General sound discrimination – instrumental sounds

 

To experience and develop awareness of sounds made with instruments and noise makers

 

Aspect 3: General sound discrimination – body percussion

 

To develop awareness of sounds and rhythms

 

Aspect 4: Rhythm and rhyme

 

To experience and appreciate rhythm and rhyme and to develop awareness of rhythm and rhyme in speech

 

Aspect 5: Alliteration

 

To develop understanding of alliteration

 

Aspect 6: Voice sounds

 

To distinguish between the differences in vocal sounds, including oral blending and segmenting

 

Aspect 7: Oral blending and segmenting

 

To develop oral blending and segmenting of sounds in words

 

 

The children work through each of these aspects, playing different games to encourage the understanding of sounds before moving onto recognition of letters and writing or words. Below I have provided you with a link to the 'Letters and Sounds Publication' for you to get an idea of the kinds of games we play in class.
