Little Wandle Phonics and Reading

At Sherdley we use the Phonics scheme Little Wandle Revised Letters and Sounds. The children start their Phonics lessons within a couple of weeks of starting school, learning how to blend and sound talk. They learn phonemes (sounds) and how they are written (graphemes). After the Autumn Half Term holiday the children start to take home reading books, carefully matched to their developing phonic ability.

The children continue to learn to read and spell using this scheme throughout Reception and Year One.

There is a comprehensive website provided by Little Wandle with information about how you child will be taught in school and how you can support them at home.
