Literacy - including phonics and writing
Little Wandle Letters and Sounds
Here at Kingston Park Primary School phonics is taught as part of a broad and rich curriculum that engages children in a range of activities and experiences to develop their reading, writing and spelling. We follow the 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds' programme as a systematic scheme. It is taught daily in discrete 30 minute sessions and phonics knowledge and skills are reinforced and applied across the curriculum.
Reading books are matched to children's phonic levels and reading is taught in guided sessions three times per week.
For more information about how we teach phonics and reading see the presentation below or look for the phonics tab under Key Information (creative curriculum.)

The development of mark making is an exciting time in Reception. The progress over the course of the year is astounding.
