We are going to continue to look at phase one phonics- aspect 3: general sound discrimination- body percussion. Here are some “challenges” from Twinkl

We are looking at making sure our knowledge regarding number one is secure. You may like to try some of these “home challenges”- some may not suit the age of your child currently.

Try these scavenger hunts! You can alter them to suit what you have at home- these are just a few themed ideas.......
