At Primet Primary School, we teach Phonics through a scheme called Little Wandle. This is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP). It is based on the original Letters and Sounds, but has been extensively revised to provide a complete teaching programme which meets all the expectations of the National Curriculum.
Phonics is taught daily for children working at Phases 1 - 5, and from Phase 2, these children have an additional 3 reading practise sessions per week, to help build fluency in decoding.

The resources on this page will help you 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.

Your child may come home with a library book in addition to their reading book, this is a book for you to share at home simply for the joy of reading.
