The Early Learners have shown a great interest in the Letterland characters, stories and sounds. Each week, the children are introduced to a new character, and are given the opportunity to participate in a phonic rich activity that is centred on the letter; this activity may be through Intentional teaching opportunities as well as spontaneous learning opportunities. Some children are already starting to recognise that some Letterland characters have a particular significance eg. Mummy starts with Munching Mike.
Children enjoy the different stories that accompany each character and start to recognise the relationship between the characters and the sounds they hear in their names.
