At St Joseph’s we use the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised phonics scheme. This ensures that ALL children are taught to read in exactly the same way. We aim for fluency in reading by the end of Key Stage 1.



Below is a link to the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised website. Here you will find videos and documents on how sounds are pronounced, videos on how phonics is taught and you will also find guidance on how best to support your child’s reading at home.

Parents of reception children are invited to a phonics workshop every Autumn term. They will have the opportunity to observe phonics being taught and support their children with some reading or phonics based activities.

Here are the sounds/phonemes the children in reception will learn.
