Class 1 learn their letters

25 February 2021

The Class 1 Main Lesson on upper case letters is well and truly underway and the children are really enjoying the fairy tales, drawings and finding the letters around them in the classroom. They practise writing using correct formation, sounding out and building the phonemic awareness that underlies reading and writing as these capacities unfold. They also used wax to form letters, this week modelling 'T' for Tree and 'N' for Needle. A multi-sensory approach to learning allows the student to experience and learn through song, rhyme, movement, bookwork and art, stimulating the visual, auditory, kinaesthetic and tactile senses as they see, hear and touch to create the things they are learning.
