The Tiny Tigers have almost fully settled into the new environment. They are getting used to the daily schedule and they have already learned about our classroom rules. They show great enthusiasm during circle and centre time and joyfully follow the songs and the choreography with them. Lately, they have been actively participating in Jolly Phonics activities during centre time. Jolly Phonics is a comprehensive programme, based on the proven, fun and multi-sensory synthetic phonics method that gets children reading and writing from an early age. This means that we teach letter sounds as opposed to the alphabet. These 42 letter sounds are phonic building blocks that children, with the right tools, use to decode the English language. The Tigers have proudly finished their first big red book of Jolly Phonics and started the purple one. The newest sound they familiarised themselves with was /e/. They listened to the exciting story related to this sound and sang the /e/ song together. They also prepared wonderful elephant artworks to showcase their knowledge. Learning sounds is super fun!
