At Sproatley Endowed CE Academy, our ambition is to nurture and develop confident and thoughtful learners who approach reading and writing with enthusiasm. We aspire to weave literacy through all areas of the curriculum, ensuring that children are aware of the relevance of these skills in life. This includes oral and communication skills, the foundation of which are laid in EYFS. We aim to prepare our children for their future by giving them the fluency of speaking, reading and writing skills necessary to succeed.
Little Wandle Letters and Sounds
As of Autumn 2021, Sproatley Endowed C of E Academy has adopted the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP) to deliver phonics teaching in school. You can find more information about phonics delivery at Sproatley by viewing our Phonics and Early Reading Policy.
The Little Wandle Letters and Sounds website has a lot of useful information for parents. There are guides to sounds being taught in school, information on how teaching is done within this SSP and lots of helpful videos and documents about the sessions and the pronunciation of sounds. We would highly recommend you explore the parents section of the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds website to enhance the support your children receive at home.
