At Bishops Waltham Infant School we teach Phonics through Little Wandle, Letters and Sounds revised.  All children being taught the scheme have phonic books matched to  the phonic sounds they have already learned. These books are available online to read and practise at home. Below are overview documents from the Little Wandle, Letters and Sounds Revised Phonics Programme. They show the order the sounds and tricky words are taught during Reception and Year 1.

It is most important that children pronounce the sounds clearly. To help you support your child with this, the following link gives access to the parent's area on the Little Wandle website. Scroll down the page to the 'Support for phonics' tab and there are three film clips that demonstrate the correct way to say the Phase 2 and 3 letter sounds.


Every year we hold a 'phonics workshop', for our Year R parents, to explain the teaching of phonics in BWIS. The accompanying links for this workshop are below. 

We also use 'Cued Articulation' as a tool to support the correct pronounciation of phonemes for those children receiving speech and language therapy. This is a specific technique used by many speech therapists. Children learn the sounds quickly and easily through the program. In the short video below, Jane Passy, the author of cued articulation, explains and demonstrates the sound and action.
