Kirton Primary School follows the ‘Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised’ scheme to teach daily phonics sessions in Reception and Year 1. This systematic, synthetic phonics programme follows a clear sequence in order to support our children to learn how to blend for reading and segment to spell. We carefully match your child’s reading book to their phonic stage using the ‘Big Cat Phonics for Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised’ books. Each week, our children are supported to develop skills in decoding, reading with expression and comprehension.

Use the link below to find resources to support your child with saying their sounds and writing their letters. There are also some useful videos so you can see how they are taught at school and feel confident about supporting their reading at home.
