Little Wandle Letters and Sounds

At Thorns Primary we teach Little Wandle Letters and Sounds. This is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP).

These three videos show you how to pronounce the sounds. Notice how the children don’t add an ‘uh’ sound at the end, so they say: ‘t’ not ‘tuh’. Use the downloadable information on the Little Wandle Website to help your child remember how to write their letters and say their sounds.

The resources on this page will help you support your child with saying their sounds and writing their letters. There are also some useful videos so you can see how they are taught at school and feel confident about supporting their reading at home.
