Practicing our Phonics!

10.01.2022

The Sunflowers have loved exploring our new wooden laptop set. They had so much fun writing their names and different CVC words, identifying the letters from the keyboard and practising their phonics skills by sounding out each letter as they identified it.

The laptop and toys similar to this allows the children to use their imaginations and helps them to develop stronger social skills by working together. It also gives children ideas of new hobbies they might enjoy and allows them to practise acting out real life situations that they may see at home.

This is a great visual tool as well, as it allows the children to see the letters in front of them, matching the sounds they say verbally to a letter.

Lots of love,

Everyone at Leighs xxx
