Phase 1 Phonics Environmental Sounds Sensory bin and resource pack

Support your child to explore different sounds around them

This resource pack provides worksheets on how to make a range of environmental sounds sensory bottles to enable children to explore the different sounds around them - volume, pitch, how they are made and what they mean.The bottles can be used as a stimuli for children who respond well to tactile play and learning. They can also be used to discuss sounds. You could ask your child, "What sound can you hear? What do you think is making the sound? If we turn the bottle another way can you still hear the sound? Is it the same? After using the bottles, you can then extend their learning by listening to sounds around the house and outside. What can they hear? What do they think is making the sound?
