Part 1: Learning the letter sounds

Suggested storyline for the ‘n’ sound

The child has a model aeroplane and goes out to fly it. There is a lot of noise as it takes off. It goes round and round as it makes a nnnnnnn sound, but then it goes out of control and nosedives, making a louder nnnnnnnn sound. The aeroplane then pulls out of the nosedive and lands safely.

Action: Children put their arms out and pretend to be the aeroplane making a continuous nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn sound.
