Little Wandle Phonics    

At Waterloo, we use the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised Systematic Synthetic Phonics Programme (SSP).

This is a fully comprehensive programme where children start learning single letter sounds and build in progression throughout their learning at Waterloo.

Phonics is taught every day and children learn to apply their phonics skills in reading practise sessions 3 times a week, developing their fluency and comprehension skills along the way.

Here is the link to the 'For Parents' section of the Little Wandle website.

The resources on this page will help you support your child with saying their phonemes (sounds) and writing their graphemes (letters). There are also useful videos so you can see how your child is taught at school, to be able to confidently support their reading at home.
