Early Reading and Phonics

Daily phonics lessons take place throughout EYFS and KS1, we use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised as our systematic synthetic phonics program, accredited by the DFE. We have practice reading sessions three mornings each week in Reception and Year 1, where trained staff from across the school support children with reading, using decodable books matched to Little Wandle phonics scheme. Further information for parents can be found by following the link below. 

Each Year we hold phonic information meetings for Parents in Reception and Year 1 please watch the following presentation to see how we teach phonics and reading in the Early Years and KS1 

Children are assessed regularly to ensure there are no gaps in their phonic knowledge and for those who require additional support they have daily 1:1 and small group catch-up sessions. There are also targeted phonic interventions and practice reading sessions for children in KS2 requiring them.
