FL2/1.1 Listening & Comprehension

This can be consolidated using the Pairs activity and the Phone (although the latter does not show the question form )

1.1b explore the patterns and sounds of language through songs and rhymes and link the spelling, sound and meaning of words
Go to the performing languages area within the pedagogy section of the website. Here are a range of songs, rhymes and tongue twisters, which will help to link the spelling, sound and meaning of words.
The patterns and sounds of sentences can be explored through both the Hungry Mouse and the language clues activity.
