Continue to practise and try hard to remember these sounds regularly using your flash cards and thinking of things that begin with each sound. Finding things around the house beginning with these sounds and practise forming the letter shapes using lots of different resources (write the letter shapes on a tray or flat surface in sand/sugar/salt. Make the letters out of play dough, pastry, salt dough.
Hear, say and recognise the initial sounds in ‘e’ words. Read Jolly Phonics story and sing the song ~ learning the action. Children to spot items beginning with 'e' in the story illustration. Air write letter shapes together using your magic finger and write the letter shape on the palm of our hand or in the air.
New parents may not be aware of how Jolly Phonics is taught, so I have attached a teacher/parent guide explaining the process.

Can you help the bees to fly back to the beehive? Show the children the Beehive Ten-Frame Counting Activity. Give the children four small items or counters and encourage them to explore different ways that the bees could be arranged in the ten-frame beehive. Encourage them to talk about the arrangements of the bees to recognise that the same number of objects can be arranged in different ways. How many bees are in the beehive? There are two bees at the top of the hive and two bees at the bottom – how many altogether? Can you find another way for the bees to be in the beehive?
