Tuning into Sounds

To enable children to begin to distinguish the initial sound in words, they need exposure to a range of games that develop this.  These opportunities should be short games that are age appropriate to ensure children are engaged in them.  Games that involve children’s names or animals, or are part of an alliterative story or poem, are good ways to develop this skill.

In Nursery, games that help us tune into sounds, such as Bertha the Bus, or What's in the Box?, are played as part of the weekly provision.
