All children learn best through a multi-sensory approach and that is exactly what happens in our Junior Kindergarten classroom.
Children experience letters and sounds from the very beginning of our Early Years Foundation Stage, through rhyme and rhythm, developing the ability to distinguish between environmental sounds and using music and instruments.
In the Junior Kindergarten classroom they are beginning to add a knowledge of the sounds that letters make and making links between those sounds and the symbols which represent them. They are learning to blend and segment orally and are beginning to learn to match the physical letters with their sounds. They are also starting to write them.
Our Junior Kindergarten children are storytellers, they use picture books to ‘tell’ a story before beginning to read it. This develops the language of story telling. Some of our children are starting to read story books too and those who are excited to do so, are even taking reading books and activities home to share with their parents.
Our Junior Kindergarten children, and their teachers, are AMAZING – we are all so proud of them!
Take a look at the pictures and videos to see just what a wonderful job they are doing!
