We LOVE phonics here at SASJ!

As soon as children join our school, we start teaching them using the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revisited scheme. This gives them a solid grounding for their reading and they can quickly start reading to learn.


EYFS children learn together as a whole class. “Keep Up” sessions are also delivered as needed. Throughout KS1, children are grouped for phonics lessons to enable the children to progress through the scheme at a pace that is relevant to them with high quality, targeted teaching.

To help you support your child in learning phonics here are some videos that show what children learn over their time in Reception:

On the parent’s page of the Little Wandle website there are also useful downloads and explanations as to how the whole phonic code fits together. A whole scheme overview can be found below:
