    We are continuing using Little Wandle Letters and Sounds this term.

    Phonics continues to be taught daily in Beech class. This term we will be consolidating all Phase 3/4/5 phonemes that we have learnt so far. 

    This term is also when the children take part in the Phonic Screening Check. All Year 1 children do this nationally in the week beginning Monday 10th June 2024. This is nothing that the children should be worried about, they will be fully supported and any extra help they may need will be tailor-made to each individual child. You will find some information about the check in the attachments below. Any questions at all you might have, please feel free to ask us. 

    You can find out more about Little Wandle Letters and Sounds by clicking on the link 




         We will continue to access e-books on the Collins site/app. The new book that the children will have been reading all week will be put into your online library on a Friday. When they read it to you, they should be reading it fluently and showcasing their skills of decoding, prosody and comprehension. 

    We will also continue to visit the library on Wednesday and bring a book to share with you and the family. This is a book that is for sharing together to encourage real pleasure for reading.
