Phonics and Reading

How we teach Phonics
We teach phonics using Little Wandle - Letters and Sounds, which is a detailed and systematic programme. This approach builds children's speaking and listening skills in their own right, as well as prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. The aim is that children become fluent readers by the age of seven. 
However, phonics interventions are embedded across the whole school, including Key Stage 2 to enable all children to secure learning gaps in phonics.
 There are 5 phases altogether and ideally, children would be taught at the age appropriate phase. 
Please see the attached progression document below for more detailed information on the 5 phases.
