Letters and Sounds with Sunflowers!


The Sunflowers have been focusing on their letters and sounds recently and have loved doing lots of games focused around this. They especially loved creating words with the broken letter jigsaws.

They all took turns sounding out the letters until they created the word that matched the picture. The Sunflowers love doing group activities and they especially loved choosing a word card and taking turns to sound out the word they had.

If one of their friends got stuck on a letter everyone would help by singing the jolly phonics song that matched that letter to help their friend. These activities help the children learn the sounds of the different letters and shows them that the sound of letters can blend into words when sounded out!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
