Polly Phonics

Post by Susan Godsland » Thu Oct 29, 2009 1:13 pm

Here’s a lighter story from most of those posted recently on the message board.

I often ask the parents’ of my tutees what reading programme is being used at the child’s school. On one occasion the parent replied that it was ‘Polly Phonics’. I suggested that she might have misheard but she insisted that the teacher called the programme ‘Polly Phonics, not Jolly Phonics’. ‘The teacher does actions for the sounds and uses a parrot hand puppet’, she continued.

Curious, I set out to find more about this ‘new’ programme. Later that day I googled ‘Polly Phonics’, thinking that I would find nothing – but there it was at the top of the page www.pollyphonics.com :lol:

:grin: Also from BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/grownups/ ... nics.shtml. Pollyphonic is the parrot in the programme. My kids love it. Packs with DVD, wallchart and books are a bargain on Amazon at the moment too.
