YEAR 1 STORY TIME PHONICS FAIRY VISIT!
6th September 2017
YEAR 1 VISIT FROM THE PHONICS FAIRY AND TRICKY TROLL
Year 1 had a huge surprise on the morning of Wednesday 6 September as we were visited by the Phonics Fairy and the Tricky Troll! As part of our new Scheme of work, the Phonics fairy came to Year 1 to spread phonic cheer and inform the children that she is going to help them learn their phonics through fun, play and stories.
Plenty of magical fairy dust was spread across the classroom and there was lots of laughing and cheer. However, this was rudely interrupted by the mischievous Tricky Troll.…. He declared to the children that he was only interested in playing tricks on Year 1 by giving them tricky words to read. Nevertheless, both adults and children were undaunted by this declaration and took up his challenge!
“Story Time Phonics is a new, holistic, whole class approach to learning to read. Its joyful yet systematic approach uses REAL books to contextualise the phonemes the children are expected to learn. The programme is practical in practice and high quality texts by best-loved authors ensure high level engagement at every stage. Multi-sensory lesson plans ensure that children of all abilities are challenged with their learning. This scheme of work is aligned to the National Curriculum and follows the sequence and phases of Letters and Sounds."
