LEARNING to make a difference


Our Phonics Learning


In Nursery we focus on the Little Wandle Letters and sounds scheme. This prepares the children for phase 2 phonics which the children will start in Reception. In September the children will begin listening and attention games and once we feel the children are ready we will start our foundations for phonics which include a balance of child-led and adult-led experiences. 


These include 


-  sharing high-quality stories and poems

- learning a range of nursery rhymes and action rhymes

- activities that develop focused listening and attention

- attention to high-quality language 

- Oral blending
