What is Jolly Phonics?
Through Jolly Phonics, children learn to identify different sounds so that they can read them and eventually write them. There are 26 letters in the alphabet but modern English uses about 44 different sounds so it may be hard to pronounce a word just from its spelling. Phonetics gets around this by looking at the actual sounds that make up a word and not how it is spelt.
In Blubricks Melaka, we abide by the curriculum from Trinity College London Examinations.
What do learners learn in this course?
For this course, we believe it is the best that playing is the best form of learning. In the first half of the course, learners will be exposed to the world of phonics through songs and movements. As the course advances, learners will dive into the world of grammar where they will explore verbs, silent letters, pronouns, infinitives and the list goes on.
Learners aged 4 to 5 years
