For phonics, we follow Sound!Start Phonics. During the year the nursery children will learn phase 1 of this program. The aspects covered in phase 1 are; general sound discrimination (environmental sounds, instrumental sound and body percussion), rhythm and rhyme, alliteration, voice sounds and oral blending and segmenting.
In Phase 1- the children are taught to listen careful, this will help them to learn in the future and to help them to hear initial sounds.
They learn how to make different sounds with their mouths.
Also how to oral blend and segment words.
