Denby Dale First & Nursery School

Little Wandle

Welcome to our dedicated curriculum page for our chosen phonics scheme - Little Wandle!

This page will provide information on our chosen scheme, including recordings of workshops and presentations. Additionally you will find links to useful videos to help at home as well as downloadable resources that you can use at home with child. We are excited to be continuing our phonics journey with Little Wandle, please get in touch if you'd like further support, information or advice at rebecca.moran@denbydale.education.

Here you can see some of the books that we will be using as part of the scheme. These books are 100% phonetically decodable and are carefully matched to your child's phonic ability. They will only have books with sounds and tricky words that they have been taught. There is a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books designed to interest your child. Remember, when the children bring these home, they should be approximately 95% fluent with the book, having read it 3 times at school that week. It's all about the celebration of reading!
