A good understanding of phonics is essential for reading but work that is too formal, presented too soon, is not helpful to young children. This book contains ideas for phonic activities for the Early Years Foundation Stage, for use both indoors andout. All are planned to help you support children in the development of phonological awareness as they work towards a structured programme. A good companion to The Little Book of Phonics, and of course L is for Sheep.
