I pay for all of Olivia’s classes with my own money. I have not been asked to write this post.
Something I am passionate about when it comes to my children is education. You can never start their education too early and we are always encouraging our children to learn more. Alongside school, Jack uses educational websites such as Reading Eggs and I was looking for something to help me aid Olivia in her learning.
My prayers were answered when I found out a lady called Hana was starting phonics classes in our village. As part of the Sounds Right franchise, I decided to head along to the trial class to see what it was all about and whether we would want to sign up for the term. Olivia absolutely adored it so we signed up for the term – and have now signed up for the next term after the summer holidays too!
What I love about these classes is that the kids really don’t feel like they’re learning – they do lots of fun activities with Playdoh and music as well as the letters we are doing that week. We usually recap on the previous letters too and it always amazes me just how much Olivia remembers.
Olivia can be a little cheeky and sometimes runs off in the other direction but it is clear that she is still listening as she always remembers the letters and the songs. She has already learned so many letters – S, A, P, C, K, N, R, T, H and I. We even popped to a local pre school fun day where Hana was doing a little class and Olivia learned U too. She is always singing the songs at home and doing the actions and she even gets Jack involved in the actions too!
Something – or should I say someone – she really does adore is Robot Reg. He is a great mascot for the business and is so much fun! Olivia loved getting her certificate and having a cuddle with him on the last day of her first term!
Overall, Sounds Right Phonics is super fun and very educational and I am very impressed with how much Olivia has already learned in such a short amount of time. I can’t wait to see how she gets on from September and I know she will definitely be missing her class over the summer holidays.
Do you do anything educational (apart from school) with your children?
