Reading and Phonics

Early Reading at Hall Green Primary School

We teach early reading through the systematic, synthetic phonics programme Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised. Children have a daily phonics lesson right from the start of Reception which follows the progression for Little Wandle Letters and Sounds and this continues in Year One and Year Two to ensure children become fluent readers.


The impact of the reading emphasis and teaching at Hall Green Primary School will be:

  • Fluent readers
  • Competent and skilled readers empowered by their knowledge 
  • High levels of comprehension and vocabulary development 
  • A fostering of reading for pleasure 
  • Year 1 Phonics Screening Check pass rates
  • High levels of engagement in the books children read
  • The ability to read across a range of subjects
