Phonics and Early Reading
We are a ‘Little Wandle’ School!
Little Wandle is an accredited Synthetic Phonics Programme (SPP).
Information for parents including:
Videos to model the pronunciation of sounds
How reading books are matched and how to support reading at home

can all be found here.
You can find our progression document for our phonics lessons here.
Reading Books at Home
Each week your child will bring home their Little Wandle reading book. This is a book that they have practised reading in school and can now read at home to build fluency with an adult. Children will also bring home a 'free choice' book. This book is for both adults and children to enjoy together. It is important to remember that this book is to be read to your child by an adult. Please ensure that your child brings their book bag into school daily, with their reading books and home reading journal inside.
