Phonics at St Matthew's C of E School
Our school uses the 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised 2021' scheme to teach Phonics to children in Reception and Year 1. We use the same scheme to support children who need additional support in Year 2, 3 and 4.
We use the 'No Nonsense Spelling scheme for children in Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Children in Year 2 and above use the following online resources to support spelling and reading:
- Spelling Shed
- Lexia online reading and spelling resource
Little Wandle is an approved Phonics programme, weaving decoding, comprehension, writing and spelling, together, seamlessly.
For more information, please visit the parents section of the Little Wandle website which provides videos and resources to support your child:
