Phonics lessons enable the children to develop early skills in reading and writing. At Chellaston Fields, the children are taught the sounds of the letters through the DfE-validated Little Wandle: Letters and Sounds Revised phonics programme. Through whole class phonics lessons, reading groups and – where necessary – tailored interventions, children are systematically taught the phonological knowledge that allows them to become fluent readers.
