At Buswells Lodge Primary School, we believe that all our children can become fluent readers and writers.
We use the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds for our phonics and early reading provision.
This is a fully comprehensive programme where children start learning single letter sounds in the autumn term of their Reception year and it builds in progression throughout Foundation Two and Year One, preparing children for the statutory phonics screening that takes place at the end of year 1.
Phonics is taught every day and children learn to apply their phonics skills in reading practise sessions 3 times a week, developing their fluency, comprehension and prosody skills along the way.
Here is the link to the 'For Parents' section of the Little Wandle website.
The resources on this page will help you support your child with saying their phonemes (sounds) and writing their graphemes (letters).
There are also useful videos below, so you can see how your child is taught at school, to be able to confidently support their reading at home.
