Fun with phonics . . .




Reading a Guardian Education Article recently I came across the work of Mr Thorne – a Primary School Teacher from England who has designed and created videos and apps to enhance Literacy learning and teaching.

If you’re looking for inspiring and engaging phonics or spelling videos click on the images above which will take you to his Youtube page and website.

One of my personal favourites is Geraldine the Giraffe. The video below shows her exploring the letter ‘s’ – something I’ll be trying with my class at the beginning of the session.

Our ‘Spelling and Phonics‘ area of the blog provides the Highland Guidelines for teaching phonics based on the HLP principles.
