Curriculum Design

Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised has been developed by Little Sutton and Wandle English Hubs and taken forward by Little Sutton Primary School and Wandle Learning Trust in partnership with other phonics and early reading experts. 

Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised has been built around the update (Department for Education – Letters and Sounds improving rates of progress 2021), as well as drawing on the latest research into how children learn best, how to ensure learning stays in children’s long term memory and how best to enable children to apply their learning to become highly competent readers.


Collins Big Cat

Collins Big Cat provides a range of  fully decodable books, expertly aligned to Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised. We introduce the scheme in Reception and use the books to support children's reading fluency as they apply the phonics they have learnt in class, this continues as they move into Year 1. There are an exciting mix of stories and non-fiction texts that help to develop children's confidence and foster a love of reading from the very beginning.
