In Nursery we focus on developing the important pre-phonics skills that will prepare children for future reading and writing.

These skills include: 

  • listening to sounds in the environment (animal noises, traffic sounds, noises around the home)
  • exploring musical instruments 
  • making sounds with our bodies (repeating claps, clicks, stamps)
  • listening to and recognising rhyme in stories, songs and nursery rhymes 
  • noticing and repeating alliteration (the sounds that words start with, eg. banana, book, bat)
  • making different sounds with our voices 
  • noticing and repeating the sounds in words
