Letters and Sounds in Kindergarten

In the last fortnight we have started learning our letters and sounds. Each week we will be learning three new letter shapes and their sounds. Last week we focused on /s/, /a/ and /t/. This week we have been busy learning /p/, /i/, /n/.  We focus on seeing, hearing, saying and writing these letter shapes. We expose the children to the letter name however, our emphasis is on recalling and identifying the sounds associated with each letter name. We encourage all children to share this learning with you as they explore the sounds around them, particularly when reading stories together.  
We look forward to helping you support your child with their learning journey in English in our upcoming evening information session on Thursday 22 March.  Keep an eye out for the note coming home with the details.

'Tell me and I forget.  Teach me and I remember.  Involve me and I learn.
