Little Wandle: Letters and Sounds Revised

Since January 2022 we have been using the government validated systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP) called ‘Little Wandle: Letters & Sounds Revised’. The programme is designed to teach children to read from Reception to Year 2, using the skill of decoding and blending sounds together to form words.

The Little Wandle website (link below) is a fantastic resource to use as parents to help you to feel confident with supporting you child with their phonics at home, as well as providing you with an insight into what their daily phonics sessions in school look like. The ‘For parents' section provides videos of how to pronounce the Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds which is especially helpful as not all the sounds are pronounced as we would expect.
