Little Wandle Letters and Sounds

                 See related image detail


Please use the link here to access the parents' area of our Phonics program, Little Wandle.


This link here will take you to the page which demonstrates how sounds learnt in the first part of the Autumn term are pronounced.

Click here to listen to a clip showing the pronunciations for Autumn 2 sounds.

This link will show the pronunciation of sounds we are learning in Spring 1.





Children in Cherry Class can now access Numbots Maths activities.  Please see the password at the back of your child's diary to log in.  If you are having trouble, please speak to a member of staff.



Phonics Play

Please click the link here to take you to the Phonics Play website, where you will find some free games to practice reading words containing sounds we have learnt.  

Your Home-School diaries should tell you which sounds to look at.

After you have selected one of the three games shown here, select Phase 2 or Phase 3 and filter the selection to show words using phonemes, digraphs and trigraphs we know or need to practice.  Children then have to decide if they are real or nonsense words and put them in the correct place.  


1-Minute Maths 

I would like to draw your attention the new FREE app from White Rose Maths called 1-Minute Maths.  You can download the app on ipad, Android and Kindle.  There is also a downloadable chart for parents to track which activities children do and when.  

It has lots of fun activities great for children in Early Years and uses lots of the resources and vocabulary our children will be familiar with.  It would be great to dip in and out of to consolidate knowledge and understanding of various number concepts.
