Recap of previously taught knowledge
After Set 1, each See Say Write video begins with a flashcard revision of sounds and vocabulary taught in previous videos.
This evidence-based learning technique exploits the psychological benefits of 'spaced repetition', cementing information into children's long-term memory.
Introducing the phonics sound
Children will hear the sound, watch how it is formed, and repeat the sound after the teacher.
Introducing the letter
Here the children will make the link between the sound and the letter, with plenty of teacher demonstration.
Children are given set times to practise writing the new letter/s in their workbook.
Handwriting is demonstrated in the video using crystal-clear teacher modelling, encouraging children to work independently.
This is followed by a 'Tick or Fix' segment, which allows children to mark their own work.
It is important that children are quickly exposed to the sound they are learning in the context of vocabulary.
Each video introduces four vocabulary words formed using the new sound. Words are taught with a picture ensuring children make the correct association.
Children are taught how to segment the vocabulary into individual sounds, for example "dad" is "d-a-d".
Segmenting words helps children read and spell.
Children are given an opportunity to spell the new vocabulary in the workbooks using the strategies that are modelled in the video.
Children are then taught how to put the new vocabulary into a sentence.
The sentence is spoken aloud and then modelled with accurate punctuation and spelling.
Children are given the opportunity to write the sentence into their workbooks, embedding their new knowledge.
