Let's start with a simple listening exercise.
Let's all be as quiet as we can and listen really carefully. Are there any sounds we can hear around us, outside in the playground or in the classroom next door? Let's listen...
Let's open the windows and try to listen again. Can we hear any different sounds?
Sounds and Symbols
Let's make a list of some of the sounds we can hear. Can we draw a symbol or picture to represent each sound?
Let's all think of the first four sounds that we heard this morning. Draw the sounds on a piece of paper or on the worksheet below.
Does anyone want to show the class the sounds they have made? You can make the sounds from left to right.
Can we all make the sounds together?
