Our schools follow the 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised' synthetic phonics programme. As part of this, Reception children and children in Year 1 take part in daily phonics lessons, where children learn the sounds they need to help them to read. They are also taught to read decodable words and 'tricky' words - those that can't be decoded. In addition to these daily phonics lessons, the Reception and Year 1 children have group reading sessions three times weekly to continue to develop their decoding, prosody and comprehension skills.
We would like to signpost you to the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Website, which has lots of information about how you can support your child's reading at home. You can find that here For parents - Letters and Sounds (
Below is a video of an information session that Mrs Taylor delivered earlier in the school year. If you were unable to attend one of the sessions, or would like a refresher, then it is avaliable here to watch.
