We use the ‘Little Wandle Letters and Sounds’ Teaching Programme to systematically teach phonics. This is a fully comprehensive programme where children start learning single letter sounds in the Autumn Term of Reception progressing to the more complex code in Year 1. This progression prepares children for the statutory phonics screening check that takes place at the end of Year 1.
Phonics is taught every day and children learn to apply their phonics knowledge in reading practice sessions three times a week. Each reading session focuses on a different skill, developing children’s prosody, fluency and comprehension skills along the way.
