Phonics & LWLS

From the beginning of Reception, our children develop their early reading skills through the consistent and robust teaching of the daily systematic, synthetic phonics programme, Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised. Children have books that match and support their phonics development and ability and are encouraged to read them at home with an adult. Daily ‘keep up’ sessions ensure all children make progress and ‘Let’s Read’ sessions - focusing on prosody, comprehension, and decoding - are timetabled three times per week.  

Children enjoy listening to challenging texts through daily, dedicated story time in EYFS and KS1.
