We use the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised to plan and provide daily engaging phonics lessons.

In phonics, we teach children that the letters of the alphabet represent a different sound, that these can be used in a variety of combinations and are put together to make words. The children learn to recognise all of the different sounds and combinations that they might see when they are reading or writing.

 We teach phonics and spellings daily in Year 2. Click here to see the overview of spelling patterns for the year.

We need to spell lots of words by the end of Year 2. Click here to see them and keep practising them until you can spell them correctly in your work.

The children  have been practising applying  sounds in phonics lessons and have been reading real and alien words.  Practise sounding out these words. Click on the links below:
