Now that we have settled in to school life, we have started our daily phonics sessions. We will be learning a new sound each day with some word building sessions in between.
This week we will be learning the sounds m, a, s, d and t.
We learn a phrase alongside each sound that helps up to form our letters correctly, beginning and ending in the right place.
m - Maisie, mountain mountain
a - Around the apple, down the leaf
s - Slither down the snake
d - Around his bottom, up his tall neck and down to his feet
t - Down the tower, across the tower
When we learn each sound we look for things beginning with the same sound. For example, m - mirror, mouse, monkey etc. You could encourage your children to find things at home or whilst you are out and about using their sounds too!

m, a ,d ,s ,t
i, n, p, g, o
