At St. Bede’s, we aim to develop confident, fluent and passionate readers and writers from an early stage. We use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised which is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP). This is a process that first teaches the letter sounds, building up to blending these sounds together to achieve full pronunciation of whole words.
We follow their progression, planning and teaching delivery and methods to ensure our children learn to read as quickly as reasonably possible. This in turn means that children can then use their reading skills to support the rest of their learning.
To find out more about how we teach phonics, please read the rest of this website page and also download the PDF document at the bottom of the page.
It is important that this learning is consolidated at home; we hold phonics workshops for parents to support them in helping to play an integral part in their child’s reading progress.
It is really important that the sounds are said clearly and without any other sound attached. When sounds are not said correctly, it can confuse children and they can sometimes struggle to put the sounds together to make the word.
