We're delighted to share with you that we have invested in the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds (revised) programme for the whole school. 'Little Wandle' is a phonics programme validated by the Department for Education.

Little Wandle Letters and Sounds has been built around the Department for Education 'Letters and Sounds, Improving Rates of Progress' (2021 update), funded by the Department for Education, as well as drawing on the latest research into how children learn best, how to ensure learning stays in children’s long term memory and how best to enable children to apply their learning to become highly competent readers.

We make a strong start teaching phonics in Reception so all children get to learn to read quickly. This is recommended by Ofsted and the Department for Education.

We'll be using the fabulous resources across the whole school and you can find additional information on their website for Parents/carers, such as this Autumn 1 2023 information sheet which explains how to say the sounds and write each grapheme with correct letter formation.
