Rainbow Sensory Play!


The Sunflowers have been practising their letter recognition through exploring a rainbow sensory tray. The children were encouraged to use tongs to find the different letters in the tray to match up with the word cards of CVC words.

Letter recognition helps enable early reading skills and associating sounds with letters. They then develop blending to form words. The children’s early writing skills then develop from making marks and scribbling to drawing and eventually forming letters. They enjoyed the praise and sense of achievement when each word was completed!

Lots of love,

Everyone at Leighs xxx
