We follow the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds phonics programme to teach Phonics. Children in Reception and Year 1 have daily phonics lessons. At the end of Year 1, children do a Phonics test as specified by the Government. Children in Year 2 sometimes need some additional phonics lessons if they find learning their letters and sounds difficult.
