Foundations for Phonics

In the nursery, children follow the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised 'Foundations for Phonics' guidance. Foundations for Phonics provides a balance of child-led and adult-led experiences for all children that meet the curriculum expectations for ‘Communication and language’ and ‘Literacy’.


These include:

o sharing high-quality stories and poems

o learning a range of nursery rhymes and action rhymes

o activities that develop focused listening and attention, including oral blending

o attention to high-quality language.
