Teaching of Phonics


Our chosen phonics program is Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised.  Follow this link to find helpful hints and tips about how to support your child at home.

In school, children are taught in whole class sessions and they take part in a daily phonics session. Children learn 44 phonemes (sounds) along with the corresponding graphemes (letters/ letter groups) using simple picture prompts. They also learn to:

  • say each letter name
  • write the graphemes which represent the 44 phonemes
  • blend graphemes to read words
  • segment words to hear each phoneme - and then spell each phoneme
  • read stories containing the graphemes they have learned
  • develop comprehension by answering ‘Find It’ and ‘Prove It’ discussion questions.
