Phase 1 - Tuning into sounds activities 

Phase 1 is usually covered in nursery and early reception, although some children may benefit from more practice with this. Phase 1 involves seven aspects of sound: environmental (noises children can hear around them), instrumental, body sounds, rhythm and rhyme, alliteration, voice sounds and oral blending and segmenting (c-a-t= cat!). 

Below are some videos and resources to support this at home.
