“I spy………something unique”👀🔎

Our classes offer something quite unique and special.

A key focus of our preschool sessions is playing lots of games to encourage the crucial early skills of oral blending and oral segmenting.

These are such important skills in the very early stages of phonics but they do not always come naturally, so children will need tuning into these along with plenty of practise at using them.

Therefore, weekly games with Robot Reg encourage and demonstrate using these skills, whilst playing fun games and activities to reinforce them. Hopefully, there are some that you can follow up with at home too!

This in turn will build the foundations and firm grounding for the next step in their learning journey.

I am thrilled to let you know that Kerry from White Pineapple Photography will be visiting our classes next week and will be able to answer any questions you may have. They are a really lovely new family photography business based in Wolverton Mill. We have had a family photoshoot with them and we were thrilled with our pictures. This a rare picture of just Craig and I and I love it!

You may recall from my emails and social media posts that all those who signed up for the full term would receive a voucher for a free photoshoot and 1 image. Kerry will be bringing and issuing the vouchers to those families that qualify.

Those of who have joined us later in the term, there is a chance to win one of these vouchers- check out White Pineapple Photography on Facebook or Instagram and enter their giveway. They have 20 vouchers up for grabs to use during half term. I don't know how many are left but its worth an entry!

🪴 G is for garden 🪴

Winter isn’t the ideal time of year to be outside looking after the garden so let’s create inside gardens. Here’s a few ideas.

🌸 plant some seeds and encourage your child to help look after them. Cress seeds are perfect for this as they grow quickly.
🌸 create a garden picture making flower pictures using handprints.
🌸 explore the rhyme Mary Mary Quite Contrary using artificial flowers and a watering can.


Final call for booking places! Booking will close at 8am tomorrow!

If you are planning on joining us this Saturday for our Love is on the Air special please book your places by 8am on Thursday 8th February. Please note the revised start time! The session now begins at 10am!

This will allow me to ensure that there are enough fabulous resources and craft materials for you all !

In our preschool class, we love to play sound bingo!
This game helps to reinforce previous learning of our letter sounds. It is also perfect for encouraging children with their cognitive and listening skills too. The children love to shout out BINGO at the end too! A fun and educational game 🤩.

Our classes are designed to support your child's speech and language but in a relaxed and informal way. That's why we will gently encourage your child to communicate but not put any pressure on them. Even those who appear not to be engaged will be absorbing so much!



Head to Head👱🧑‍🦱

This is one of my favourite games that we play in our Preschool classes and it is also the simplest as it requires no resources apart from two bodies!

In this game the children use their blending skills to listen to the name of the body part in 'Robot Talk'. They then put that part of their body against their grown ups. The beauty of this game is that there are lots of different body parts that can be segmented easily into three or less sounds. Two of my favourites are n-o-se to n-o-se 👃 and ch-i-n to ch-i-n. If you comment 'list please'. I will send you a list of all the body parts that have max 3 sounds in the word)

Why not play this game at home with your child or they could play with a sibling!


It's nearly time for the next market!!!!

❕❕ Remember to bring cash this Saturday ❕❕

Counting ducks

Follow up activity to help reinforce this weeks sound 'd'...

Let your child explore a range of ducks - and then gently role model counting each duck.

Ask your child some questions to aid their counting skills.

How many ducks?
Can you put your ducks in to the big bowl?
Can you put all your ducks in to the small bowl?

Sing the song '5 little ducks went swimming one day' to reinforce counting skills.

🦕 D is for Dinosaur 🦖

This simple set up is great for following up with our D sound at home.

We used some flour in a tray and made footprints in it, and used a pastey brush to practise writing the d sound too.

You could also write some sounds on a piece of paper and hide underneath the flour for your little one to discover!


There are just 3 weeks left of this half term. Been wondering whether our classes are right for you and your child ? Come and see for yourself with a 3 week trial.

⭐Hands on learning⭐

🤖Here at Phonics with Robot Reg we rarely sit still. Many of our activities include invitations to play; encouraging little ones to enquire, be inquisitive and get involved!

🤖This set up in a Minis class helped little ones to explore the 'i' sound for 'insects'. Not only that, it enhanced language development as children were exposed to words describing the colour, size, shape and pattern of their insect.

🤖An activity enjoyed by little ones and their grown ups alike!!

Why not give a Minis class a try? Suitable for ages 1-3 years

Mondays 12.45pm Willen Pavilion
Wednesdays 10am

Try this simple follow-up language sorting activity. Have a hunt round the house and find some big objects and some small objects. Using two tubs/boxes, get your children to sort the objects into 'big' and 'small'. Encourage your little one to use the words 'big' and 'small'. Can they use 'bigger than' and 'smaller than' to compare the objects?
