At Anston Greenlands we follow the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds (Revised) programme for phonics. This is a validated scheme in line with the government’s best practice guidance for the teaching of early reading. Please click the links below to find out more about phonics teaching in school.

Resources for parents

The Little Wandle website ( is a fantastic resource to show how we teach phonics. You’ll find lots of videos and how-to guides to help you help your children at home. We would encourage all of our parents to spend some time on this page.

Here are the graphemes (groups of letters that make one sound) that your child should know by the end of Wrens / Robins:

Graphemes – Foundation Stage 2
Graphemes – Year 1
