Phonics Theory & Blending Sounds
All of the Phonics Stars ™ classes are based on learning through play. Children are introduced to the sounds letters from the alphabet make, these sounds are called phonemes. Providing lots of listening games which link to Phase one phonics, children will begin to fine tune their listening skills and begin to hear the initial sounds in words, leading to end and middle sounds. Developing listening skills is incredibly high on the agenda. Breaking words into sounds orally helps children with their audible development, orally blending and segmenting words.
Children and adults have fun taking part in a range of creative and play based experiences which can be continued at home. Preschools and nurseries learn teaching methods, techniques and activity ideas that can be continued within their setting, they have an opportunity to gain observations and work with the class leader. Class leaders also offer CPD with separate in-house training and events.
Phonics Stars focus closely on Phase 1 phonics from Letters and Sounds, the most recent publication from DFE. Sessions are carefully planned to support the 7 aspects from phase one.
Phonics Stars is all about bringing sounds and letters to life through exciting techniques to engage both children and their grown ups and is all combined with energetic dance actions. Some children who are developmentally ready or older in age, might also gain an introduction to digraphs (sh, ch, th etc.) and sight word games and activities.
Children learn to blend sounds when they are developmentally ready. The development of speech and sound awareness is supported with the regular use of alliteration and breaking down words into sounds using interactive phonics games. We also use many props in Phonics Stars™ classes and we provide simple activity ideas so that Children can continue their learning at home.
