At Hummersea Primary School, we use the Little Wandle (Letters and Sounds Revised) programme to deliver a systematic phonics approach to reading to get children off to a flying start with their Literacy. The programme enables every child to become confident and fluent readers at the first attempt.
As well as Phonics, reading is taught daily to all children. Children read with their teacher on a book that has been specifically selected for their reading age and phonic ability. We check the children’s reading age by using PM Benchmark Reading Assessment. The children are then placed on a specific level for their reading age.
