Learning the Letter Sounds with Jolly Phonics


Families may like to view the following videos. The first one will allow you to hear the 42 letter sounds of Jolly Phonics, spoken in British English. Each letter sound is clearly spoken twice, before an example word is given. The second one is the songs, which the children learn in class and will probably love to sing at home too. SoundsJP Songs
