The phonics

PKC and D were delighted to share their finshed alphabet handprint books with Mr Ferguson, Miss Tiffany and Miss Katie this week. The students have been working on their own book throughout the year. When learning a new sound in their phonics lesson they have also used sensory art to produce a handprint of an object linked to that particular sound. Animals have been a common handprint - we’ve produced crabs, elephants, spiders, and even a yak, to name a few. Trickier ones included a rose and a violin but were were able look at real life objects to help us. The roses smelt lovely in our classroom and thank you to Miss Cheena for incorporating some violin playing into our music lessons. 

Phonics is a method that teaches children to read by pronouncing sounds rather than the letters and recognising their relationship, for example children learn that the letter 'A' has the sound of 'a' like in the word (a)pple. This method allows children to decode sounds and blend them together using analytical and problem solving skills to make sense of unfamiliar words. These are lifelong skills, so being taught from an early age is very beneficial. The students had so much fun producing their book and this process has assisted them in learning the sounds.
