Our reading scheme and phonics programme
In September 2021 we adopted a new phonics programme; Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised.
We have invested heavily in high quality, decodable books which match the scheme.
Click here to visit the parents' information page on the Little Wandle website.
When children are ready they move onto the Accelerated Reader Scheme which ensures that comprehension skills are developed alongside the skills of word reading. They take a quiz after finishing their book (which is matched to their learning needs) to further develop their understanding of the text. They move up levels when the class teams feel that they are ready, when they have shown good understanding of the texts that they are reading.
