At St Julian's we use a resource called Little Wandle to teach phonics and early reading skills.
Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised
Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised is a phonics programme which aims to build on children’s speaking and listening skills as well as preparing children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills.
Our phonics teaching starts in EYFS, with the aim of all children becoming fluent readers as they move into Key Stage 2.
What will my child learn in phonics?
Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised Programme is broken down to teach sounds in a certain order . These are set out in the Programme Overview below.
How can I help my child at home?
It is really important that the children are saying all sounds as ‘pure sounds’ (ie not saying an ‘uh’ sound on the end). Here are the videos showing how all sounds should be pronounced.
Where can I find more information?
The Little Wandle website has a page for parents where you can access lots of the information and videos above and guides on how to support children to write the graphemes. Worth a look!
