How we teach Phonics

Phonics Teaching at Mansfield Primary Academy:

At Mansfield Primary Academy, we aim to teach pupils to read effectively using the Little Wandle synthetic Phonics Programme. This Programme was adopted in January 2022 and includes daily teaching of synthetic Phonics, including group reading sessions to support and develop children’s knowledge and evolve a love for reading.

We passionately believe that teaching children to read and write independently is paramount to children’s academic development. These fundamental skills support children not only to access to rest of our curriculum but also have a great impact on Pupil’s self Esteem.

Children are taught daily Phonics following little Wandle Scheme. They are tracked on their Phonics Progression using relevant assessments and reading fluency groups three times a week, this allows us to put interventions in place for any pupils that need extra support.
