At St David's C of E Primary School we use Little Wandle 'LETTERS and SOUNDS' to teach phonics. When children start school, we first teach the children to recognise letters, the sounds that they make and using a synthetic, systematic phonic approach which follows the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds phonics programme.  Children are taught how the sounds (phonemes) are blended together to read or segmented (broken down) when the children are learning to write.
