Since the Spring term we have been using the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised phonics scheme which the children are really enjoying.
This is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP) developed for schools by schools. It is based on the original Letters and Sounds, but has been extensively revised to provide a complete teaching programme which meets all the expectations of the National Curriculum.
Phonics is taught daily for 30 minutes in the morning and the children will also have an additional 3 reading practise sessions per week, to help build fluency in decoding.
Here is the link to the 'For Parents' section of the Little Wandle website. https://www.littlewandlelettersandsounds.org.uk/resources/for-parents/
The resources on this page will help you support your child with saying their phonemes (sounds) and writing their graphemes (letters). There are also useful videos so you can see how your child is taught at school, to be able to confidently support their reading at home.
Letters and Sounds is the phonic scheme that we are using in Willow Class. The following website will give you more information.
We will be learning the Phase 2 sounds in the first half of the Autumn Term.
