  • Sounds of the week and tricky words - Little Wandle.

    The DFE accredited Little Wandle Letters and Sounds programme is the scheme that we use to teach phonics. 

    Children are taught as part of a whole class and assessment for learning identifies children who need extra phonics intervention to keep up and close the gaps.                   Independent Writing - children have access to writing resources so they become an integral part of their play. Writing resources are not only be stocked but changed and adapted responding to children’s interests and requests. Adults encourage writing with phrases such as “tell me about your writing”. Adults join in with play regularly, taking the opportunity to model skills within play scenarios such as modelling writing for a purpose in the role play area. Children love to copy adults and it will quickly come to an activity an adult is ‘playing’ with, copying what the adult has done.                                                                                                                                                                                                              Support staff work closely alongside class teachers, observing children, leading focus groups and leading intervention groups.

  • Supporting your child with reading

    Supporting your child with reading

    Although your child will be taught to read at school, you can have a huge impact on their reading journey by continuing their practice at home.

    There are two types of reading book that your child bring home: A reading practice book and a sharing book.

    Reading practice book

    This book has been carefully matched to your child’s current reading level. If your child is reading it with little help, please don’t worry that it’s too easy-your child needs to develop fluency and confidence in reading.

    Listen to them read the book. Remember to give them lots of praise – celebrate their success! If they can’t read a word, read it to them. After they have finished, talk about the book together.

    Sharing book

    In order to encourage your child to become a lifelong reader, it is important that they learn to read for pleasure. The sharing book is a book they have chosen for you to enjoy together.

    Please remember that you shouldn’t expect your child to read this alone. Read it to or with them. Discuss the pictures, enjoy the story, predict what might happen next, use different voices for the characters, explore the facts in a non-fiction book. The main thing is that you have fun!
