Across The Kite Primary Federation we use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds programme to teach our synthetic phonics.

The children will also read together in a small group 3 times a week during which they will familiarise themselves with the phonemes being taught. To help the children with their reading, it is important that they also read this phonic book to you at home via their E learning and they should be able to access 98% of the book independently as they read it to you.
The children will also bring home a Reading for Pleasure book which they can share with you and you can read to them. Picture books are wonderful reading for pleasure books. By reading in this way, we hope to foster a love of reading and their ability to read successfully by ‘growing their code'(building up the phonemes they know).
