At Dundry, we use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised as our phonics programme

 

Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised

Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised is a phonics programme which aims to build on children’s speaking and listening skills as well as  preparing children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills.

Our phonics teaching starts in EYFS, with the aim of all children becoming fluent readers as they move into Key Stage 2.

Please watch this presentation, explaining how phonics and reading is taught at Dundry Primary School.

 

Pure Sounds

It is really important that the children are saying all sounds as ‘pure sounds’ (ie not saying an ‘uh’ sound on the end) As referred to in the presentation, here are the videos showing how all sounds should be pronounced. Click on link (not picture!)

       

Phase 2 single sounds                           Phase 2 consonant blends
