Phonics and Reading
In our school, to teach phonics and early reading in EYFS and Key Stage 1, we follow the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised programme (from January 2022). When children have completed the phonics programme (usually in Year 2), they move to the school's chosen spelling scheme.. We ensure our curriculum is interactive and engaging for all.
Children read phonically decodable reading resources, including Big Cat for Little Wandle Letters and Sounds and Big Cat Phonics readers, directly matched to their individual phonics knowledge and needs. Children work through the reading scheme, following careful assessments of phonics knowledge by teachers.
