D for Dog

This week in Kindergarten the children are learning about the importance of hearing and blending sounds. During the term they have progressively learnt more and more sounds until this week they are learning six sounds at once.

They have also reached the letter “D” in the alphabet. To reinforce learning they made the face of a dog from a paper plate.

Our Infants Teachers utilise a methodology called THRASS for the explicit teaching of literacy skills. THRASS is a phonics based system which helps students gain a better understanding of the way letters and sounds work in the English language.
