At St. Peter's, we use the Government's agreed phonics programme called ‘Little Wandle’. This Phonics program is designed to develop children’s early reading and writing skills by:

  • fostering children’s speaking and listening skills as valuable in their own right and as preparatory to learning phonic knowledge and skills;
  • teaching high quality phonic work at the point they judge children should begin the programme.

For most children, this will be by the age of five with the intention of equipping them with the phonic knowledge and skills they need to become fluent readers and spellers by the age of seven.

Phonics Practise

Phonics Screening Check

The children in Year 1 complete a Phonics Screening Check every year. This enables the teacher to see if they have any gaps in their knowledge. The Phonics Screening Check is made up of nonsense and real words and is to test how well the children can read using their sound blends. Please see below for an example of the Phonics Screening Check.
