Phonics and Early Reading

Phonics and Early Reading at Colburn



This academic year, we have begun to follow 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds'. The way we teach Phonics has become more engaging and more practical so that the whole class can access it at their own individual level. 


We have also adopted Little Wandle's strategies for teaching reading. In the following videos you will see parts of a Phonics lesson, an example of an intervention to support 'keep up, not catch up' as well as some group reading sessions.

Watch our Y2 class practise their 'Speedy Sounds' at the beginning of their Phonics session.
