Little Wandle

We are proud to be delivering the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised Programme. Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP) developed for schools by schools. It has been extensively revised to provide a complete teaching programme which meets all the expectations of the National Curriculum and enables children to apply their learning and become fluent readers.

Phonics begins in Reception with a daily session working on the grapheme–phoneme correspondence and blending to read. Daily phonic sessions continue into Year 1 and the Autumn term in Year 2.

Throughout the phonics programme, progress is tracked and monitored closely to identify children who require ‘keep up’ sessions. These short sessions will be specific to individual needs and will take place throughout the school day.

Children in Key Stage 2 will continue to receive ‘keep up’ interventions if needed until they have a secure knowledge of the phonic phases 1-5.
