The Teaching of Phonics at Mersey Park Primary School

At Mersey Park Primary School we teach phonics using a validated programme, ‘Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised’. Our fidelity to the programme ensures;  direct teaching in frequent, short bursts; consistency of approach; secure, systematic progression in phonics learning; effective pace of learning; repeated practice; application of phonics using matched decodable books and early identification of children at risk of falling behind.
