Pre-school Phonics 'Wellie Walks'

Recently we have introduced a weekly 'Wellie Walk' into the routine of our Pre-school room. This activity is an opportunity for the children to explore an outside environment whilst also taking part in an active phonics lesson.

Each week we change the focus of the walk to match our sound of the week, our previous walks have used the sounds; 't', 'n', 'i' and 'p'.

During our first walk the children explored the school field in their wellies to find items starting with the sound 't'. They had to search high and low as well as searching through the long grass. Our other activities have encouraged the children to work as a team to find as many items and printed words starting with their sound as possible.

During our future walks the children will continue to find items starting with our sound of the week and they will also find items which rhyme with their word or picture, hopefully in beautiful sunshine.
