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.
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
