About this deal

Discuss the pictures, enjoy the story, predict what might happen next, use different voices for the characters, explore the facts in a non-fiction book. Children leave Key Stage 2 as competent readers with a shared love of stories and a secure understanding of what they have read. Children with special educational needs follow the Little Wandle Phonics programme as outlined above. These short, sharp lessons last 15-20 minutes daily and have been designed to ensure children quickly catch up to age-related expectations in reading. As far as I can see, the 7+ books look to just be the same phases but aimed at older kids (ie more age appropriate content for kids with a lower reading age than their age).

This will be taught in a fun multisensory way and may well involve: writing sounds/ words, songs, actions, pictures, puppets, writing giant letters in the air, using different voices, moving around the room, treasure hunts. identify/ explain key aspects of fiction and non-fiction, such as characters, events, titles and information.My DS is currently reading at the hardest end of Phase 2 (summer born reception) which probably equates to the easier end of red books using the list someone linked earlier. They will practice decoding the words in the book and will discuss the meaning of any new words before reading.

Sessions take place daily with a balance of child-led and adult-led experiences supporting all children in meeting the curriculum expectations for ‘Communication and Language’ and ‘Literacy’. This could be done by using pictures, missing words in sentences, fill in the missing sounds, make words with the sound using letters displayed. At these levels, children should have sufficient fluency to tackle any book at age-related expectations. Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised is validated by DfE (June 2021) and is included on their list of approved SSP programmes. The progress in the phases seems much more regimented, so I think we’ll be “stuck” on stage 4 for quite a while….We aim for the majority of Y1 pupils to pass the phonics screening test (at least in line with national figures).

Interestingly, we’ve just had a book home that is “not decodable at any point using Little Wandle” according to this spreadsheet, but the book is branded as Phase 4 Little Wandle! The children who did not meet the required standard for the check in year 1 enter again in year 2 with additional support. The books will be matched perfectly to the Little Wandle progression and will support all the Letters and Sounds phases. The school I teach at swapped to little wandle at the start of the year and we've had to reorganise, give away and purchase new books.Although your child will be taught to read at school, you can have a huge impact on their reading journey by continuing their practice at home. It is our intention to ensure that, by the end of their primary education, all pupils (including those with SEND) are able to read fluently, and with confidence, in any subject in their forthcoming secondary education by ensuring all children have the appropriate word reading and comprehension skills. Get ready to have fun on the track as you learn about go-karts and the rules of the track in this non-fiction book. Year 1 class teachers will hold a meeting for parents in the Spring term to ensure that parents feel confident in supporting their children during the phonics screening check.
