P.1 – Learning new sounds

Watching child-friendly film clips online is a fun and useful way to help your child learn new sounds and boost their word building skills.

Youtube has lots of great videos available. In class, we always watch ‘Geraldine the Giraffe’. Just add the sound of the week to your Youtube search and enjoy Geraldine’s antics!

Other good sources on Youtube are:

Ash’s Phonics

Mr Thorne

Jolly Phonics


Have fun with phonics everyone – try writing a list of words you see on the clips you watch for the week’s sounds then challenge your child to find more in the books you read. Warning – it can become addictive!
