Phonics Display Activity

Here are the children decorating the letters for our phonic display activity. Children enjoyed being independent in gluing and sticking their letters.

This also builds on their physical development/fine motor skills as well as their literacy and creative skills.

Sand play is another great sensory experience. Sand is used for a variety of activities. Children select resources to add to the sand each day such as dinosaurs, cars, cups and spoons etc. This is also used for letter writing, copying different letters from name cards into the sand.
