- Children need to know that each letter has both a 'name' and a 'sound'.
- The automatic recognition and recall o the "sound" of each letter will help them become competent and fluent readers through their ability to decode new words.
The activities have been carefully selected to provide practice and revision to help achieve the following:
- Understanding how letters and groups of letters are used to represent the sounds of spoken language.
- Awareness of the similarities and differences in the shapes and patterns of letters and words.
- Success with simple word building exercises.
- An increase in vocabulary and recognition of common words.
- Development of handwriting skills while studying phonics.
