Systematic Synthetic Phonics
We believe that it is fundamental to teach Systematic Synthetic Phonics so that pupils have the skills they need to be able to read. We aim for children at Green Lane to be inspired to have a love of reading throughout their school journey and beyond into adulthood. The English language is such a difficult language to learn with the many different ways to make the same sounds from different letters or combinations of letters. By teaching our children to read through a phonic approach we aim to nurture pupils so they develop into confident readers with a willingness to have a go. This will help pupils to become proficient readers who can in turn immerse themselves within the wider curriculum and enjoy and achieve in their learning.
Systematic Synthetic Phonics is a method of teaching children to read and write. Phonics is the learning to read method used in Primary Schools in the UK. Four years ago the team at Green Lane worked together to produce a unique phonics programme, Seashore Phonics. This significantly improved the early reading skills of our youngest pupils. We decided to research what other programmes might lead to even ore success in the longer term and we took the decision to adopt the Little Wandel programme from September 2022.
We the effective teaching of systematic synthetic phonics within EYFS, Key Stage 1 and beyond enables all children to become confident, independent, interested and passionate early readers. We provide an approach that we believe is creative and inspires children to have a love for reading.
