Teaching Phonics and Early Reading

Teaching Phonics and Early Reading

The video below explains how we teach phonics and early reading at EHPS. We have adopted the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised systematic synthetic phonics programme, which we will be following from January 2022. The video introduces the approaches used, some of the terminology you may hear, what we do in the classroom and how to support your child’s learning at home.



The video refers you to some additional Little Wandle video resources, the link to which is provided below. These are found on the For Parents section of the Little Wandle website.


How to pronounce the sounds (phonemes) video is in the Support for Phonics section.

Blending and Tricky Words videos are in the How We Teach section.
