Phonics

 

Our children learn Phonics using the Little Wandle programme. This is a systematic synthetic approach which ensures progress across EYFS and KS1. Phonics is a crucial part of Early Reading so this is a massive focus and is taught daily right from EYFS through KS1.

Coverage in Phonics:

Nursery = Phase 1 and start of Phase 2

Reception = Phase 2, 3 and 4

Year 1 = Recap of Phase 3 and 4 and move onto Phase 5

Year 2 = Recap of all phases and move onto Phase 6 and spelling rules

In KS2, we identify children’s phonic gaps and they are addressed through small group interventions using the Keep Up program.

In Year 1, children will sit a phonics screening test towards the end of the year (June) where they will be expected to read a range of real words and alien words (made up words) using all of the taught knowledge from phases 2-5. Here is a PowerPoint to explain the phonics screening check:  LW Phonics and Reading pp for parents.pdf

Home Reading:

Children are encouraged to read at home at least three times a week using our Little Wandle Phonics reading books.  These books have been carefully matched from recent assessments in school; supporting children’s phonic knowledge and gaps.
