Discrete phonics sessions occur daily in Reception and Year 1. We follow Little Wandle to support the planning, teaching and assessment of phonics. Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP) that has been validated by the Department of Education. It ensures children build on their growing knowledge of the alphabetic code, mastering phonics to read and spell as they move through school. We teach phonics whole class, with keep up sessions where appropriate.
