Phonics at Borrow Wood Primary School

From September 2022 phonics will be taught using the Little Wandle Systematic Synthetic Phonics programme.

All children in Foundation and Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and Year 2) have a daily phonics lesson with additional daily sessions for identified children to ensure they keep up with the programme. 

A significant financial investment has been committed to buying resources, training and phonically decodable books to enable the teaching of phonics to run smoothly.

Mrs Tomlinson is our Early Reading/Phonics leader and she will be providing further information about Little Wandle over the coming weeks.


The Phonics Screening Check


All children in Year 1 do the Phonics Screening Check in June. Should children not make the standard in Year 1, they redo the Phonics Screening Check in Year 2.
