Little Wandle at Iceni Academy, Hockwold
We have been using Little Wandle Letters and Sounds since April 2022. It is a phonics programme developed for schools by schools. Once children have a secure knowledge of phonics and are confidently blending, they will be ready for reading books.
One of the features of Little Wandle is that the children keep up rather than catch up; this is what the children are expected to know in each phase:
For parents wishing to support their child with their learning, Little Wandle provide a ‘For Parents’ section on their website which gives more information about how we teach phonics.
The parents section of the website explains about the reading books and the sharing books that your child will bring home. If you have any questions, please do ask your child’s class teacher – we are always happy to help!
