We deliver phonics through the DfE approved scheme Little Wandle 

For more information please see our phonics page.

Home learning 

Your child will bring home two 'Little Wandle' home learning sheets with activities to help you practise at home. The sheets contain learning from class from the previous week and the current week. Please practise regularly with your child. Continued repetition of saying the sound (phoneme) and recognising the letter (grapheme) will support your child in learning to read and support them to progress. 

Your child will bring home a reading book matched to their phonic knowledge and a book to share with you. Please practise reading together at least five times per week.

For more information please see our reading page.
