Nursery Phonics

Phase 1 Phonics with Mrs Mitchell

This page is dedicated to the Nursery phonics videos and ideas for you to try at home too.

Phase 1 phonics is really important in getting the children to distinguish the difference between different sounds and oral blending and segmenting is an important part of this and it sets them up for reading in Reception. This supports our learning in Literacy with Reading and Communication and Language with listening and attention.

Phonics Websites

We often use the Phonics Play website in Nursery. Phonics Play is free at the moment. Use 'march20' as the username and 'home' as the password. Access Phase 1 for Nursery.

We also use the Teach your Monster to Read website too. Try listening to the monster's songs about the letter sounds - try the 'hear it and say it' songs at the top of the page and listen to what the monster is finding or putting into his crazy stir fry. You could use the 'see it and say it' with an adult and see if you can spot some letters that are in your name.

Olaf's Gym

This one is called Olaf's Gym as Olaf will give instructions where the words are broken down into the sounds and the children have to blend the sounds together to understand and follow the instruction. This is good for distinguishing between the different sounds and for their listening skills. Join in along at home and you could try your own version with your own favourite toy.

Noisy Neighbours

We often play this in Nursery and it is another good game for listening skills and distinguishing between different sounds that they hear everyday. Gather some resources from around your house, e.g. toy telephone, mug and spoon, crisps, a crunchy carrot, kettle, hairdryer and have a go yourselves. Have fun playing!

Olaf's Lunch

This one is Olaf's Lunch. We usually play this in Nursery but with Jigsaw Jenie or Ronnie Robot. You can adapt and do this activity at home too using items from your cupboards and put it some items that your toy definitely wouldn't want to eat and that adds an extra element to it.
