Phonics & Reading Schemes
At Longroyde we follow 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised' as our Systematic, Synthetic Phonics (SSP) programme.
This programme is followed with rigor and fidelity by all teachers and teaching assistants. Discrete whole-class phonics lessons are taught to all children, daily in Years 1, 2 and Reception.
To ensure that learning is embedded, flashcards and reading opportunities continue throughout the day and additional phonics teaching is given to identified children where required through into Key Stage Two.
The children in Reception and Year 1 continue to consolidate their phonics knowledge and extend their reading skills through the Little Wandle Collins Big Cat Reading Scheme. The children read a book linked to the learning in class that day. An electronic copy of the book is assigned to the children for them to read at home.
Our children are exposed to a wide range of genres, and once they become confident decoders are able to access and independently read a wide range of texts through the ‘Accelerated Reader’ scheme, supporting and furthering their comprehension skills.
