Our new Turney School pupils in Silver Class are continuing to make fantastic progress with their phonic skills. This is a key part of the curriculum from an early age. Phonics provides the pupils with verbal building blocks that they need in order to develop their verbal and written skills.
Our Silver Class pupils each have their own needs and abilities. We have put in place an individual phonics programme that will help each child progress throughout the term. The main aim is for all children to not only recognise different letters, but to also understand what sound a sequence of letters together can make.
We have been using the many different ICT resources around Silver Class to help us with our work. You can watch a short video above showing how the class whiteboard and iPad are put to use for this incredibly important work.
