At Edward Wilson Primary School, we teach Phonics following the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds revised Systematic Synthetic Phonics (SSP) scheme. Our scheme is a successful, systematic way of teaching children to read by linking sounds to the letters which represent them. Our interactive daily Phonics lessons are taught by teachers whom have received additional training via our partnership with the Wandle English Hub.

Each lesson consists of:

  • Revisit and Review
  • Teach and Practise
  • Practise and Apply

To support their learning of new sounds, the children are taught mnemonics. Tricky words are also taught as part of the lesson.

There is plenty of information for parents on the Little Wandle website. Here you can find videos showing how to say the sounds, how to write the letters and how we teach Phonics.
