This week we will be continuing to introduce the children to early phonics - letter sounds. 


In Nursery we use the Jolly Phonics rhymes and actions to help the children to remember each sound. We will introduce two sounds each week.


This week the sounds are 'I' and 'N'.


Watch these Jolly phonics videos regularly and practise the songs and actions.
