Little Wandle Letters & Sounds Revised - Phonics and Reading

In September 2021 we started using the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP).


This is a fully comprehensive programme where children start learning single letter sounds in the autumn term of their Reception year and it builds in progression throughout Reception and Year One, preparing children for the statutory phonics screening that takes place at the end of year 1.


Phonics is taught every day and children learn to apply their phonics skills in reading practise sessions 3 times a week, developing their fluency and comprehension skills along the way.

This video runs through our recent presentation to parents, showing how the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised SSP will work in our school.

Please follow the link below to watch the videos on how to pronounce the sounds correctly.


Please note that as a school we are continuing to teach 'w' and 'y' sounds in the same way we have previously.
