Jittabugs are proud to announce they use the Jolly phonics system in our Phonics sessions read more about Jolly Phonics It uses the synthetic phonics method of teaching the letter sounds in a way that is fun and multi-sensory, enabling children to become fluent readers. The sounds are taught in a specific order (not alphabetically). This enables children to begin building words as early as possible.
There are five skills taught in phonics, they are –
- Learning the letter sounds
- Learning letter formation
- Identifying the sounds in words (segmenting)
- Tricky words
At Jittabugs we only concentrate on Learning the letter sounds and using those sounds in song and dance & sensory.
This program is aimed at age 2-5 years old. Some of our tutors offer this class in a 30 minute session, others 45 mins to an hour. We don't sit at desks, this is an informal, fun, educational class. We sit in a circle on the floor and sing songs, use movement and multi- sensory to enhance our learning of Phonics and numbers . In some sessions art and craft may be included at the end of the session using the Phonic & Number handouts.
They are also doing Number Bugs to teach early maths skills.
