Supporting your child at home

All children are provided with a Little Wandle or Big Cat book which is closely matched to their phonic phase and/or reading level. Children take these books home and are asked to read at home with an adult as much as possible and no less than 4 times a week. Children also have access to Collins online, where they can access a variety of matched books within the scheme. 


Spelling shed is used in schools to teach children spelling rules and children are then set tasks each week matched to their learning at school.


Phonics is taught using the Little Wandle phonics scheme. The website has lots of helpful information about supporting phonics at home.
