In Early Years we teach phonics using Letters and Sounds. We use Jolly Phonics as a tool to aid this as it is a fun and interactive. We learn actions for each of the 42 letter sounds, the multi-sensory method is very motivating for children. The songs are catchy and the children are taught the corresponding actions. This links visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles. Jolly Phonics is available on You Tube and therefore can be accessed at home by parents to support the learning the children do within class.

Jolly Phonic Song for Kid Phase 2

Please practise singing the songs and learning the actions that go with them. Maybe you could have a go at writing the letters too?

Jolly Phonics Phase Three

These sounds are 'digraphs' that is when two letters together make one sound.
