Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP) developed for schools by schools. Based on the original Letters and Sounds, but extensively revised to provide a complete teaching programme meeting all the expectations of the National Curriculum.
In Nursery children develop the Foundations for Phonics, through engaging games we teach oral blending and phonemic awareness.
We support language development and a love of books through:
• sharing high-quality stories and poems with children
• learning a range of nursery rhymes and action rhymes
• activities that develop focused listening and attention, including oral blending
• attention to high-quality language with children
In Reception and Year 1 children follow the Little Wandle Progression.
Reading books are closely linked to phonological knowledge and reading is taught for decoding, prosody and comprehension.
