We have joined forces with Letterland to start a phonics learning journey with the children. As Grace has just begun school it’s the perfect time to for us to learn about phonics, me included! As I can then help her with her own learning journey and understand how she is being taught in school, enabling me to support her whilst she does homework and learning at home.
They kindly sent us a start pack of a range of their fun learning products, including parent guides, books, work books, magnetic letters, flashcards and lots of other learning extras.
“Letterland was created to teach phonics using a story-based approach. The story logic engages students leading to long term retention of concepts. What’s more, Letterland is wonderfully multi-sensory. It activates every learning channel through music, actions, alliteration, movement, song, art, games and role-play.”
“Letterland’s educational books, software and games have helped children learn to read, write and spell confidently in over 111 countries.”
“Much research has been done to understand the way we learn. This analysis supports the use of characters and actions to teach phonics.”
Parents can visit the Letterland website, for help, advice and useful hints and tips for helping their little ones learn, they can also read the studies and research to see why and how this type of learning works. Then they can also buy any of the products if they so wish to start their little ones on their literacy learning journey. Items in the shop are easily found and characterised by the level the children are working at and their ages so you will be able to navigate what items are just right for your children.
We look forward to working through the activities and workbooks the children have been sent.
