In the nursery, children follow the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised ‘Foundations for Phonics’ guidance. The focus is on daily oral blending and language development through high quality stories and rhymes.
In reception and Y1, children follow the progression within Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised programme. Phonics is taught daily and there is a review session on a Friday.
By the end of reception, children will have been taught up to the end of phase 4.
By the end of year 1, children will have been taught up to the end of phase 5.
Children in year 2 recap any gaps in their phonics knowledge in the autumn term and beyond, if needed. Those children in Year 2 who have completed their phonics learning will continue to consolidate and apply phonics knowledge through Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.
