Lola the Listening Leopard

Lola teaches us how to sit and listen through games in readiness for us to start our Phase 1 Phonics program. Lola is very popular with the children and they soon learn that she doesn't like loud noises. 

Phase 1 

As soon as the children have all settled in we will begin our phonic sessions. 

We start with listening skills before we begin Letters and Sounds Phase 1.


Phase 1 has 7 Aspects to cover. We will revisit aspects if we feel the children need further consolidation of learning.

Aspect 1 - General sound discrimination - environmental

Aspect 2 - General sound discrimination - instrumental sounds

Aspect 3 - General sound discrimination - body percussion

Aspect 4 - Rhythm and rhyme

Aspect 5 - Alliteration

Aspect 6 - Voice sounds

Aspect 7 - Oral blending and segmenting

Please see the powerpoint below for more information in order to help you and your child at home.
