At Woodham Tots we follow the Little Wandle Foundations for Phonics scheme.

Foundations for phonics contributes to the provision for ‘Communication and language’ and‘Literacy’ (DfE, 2022) and sits alongside a stimulating language-rich provision. Foundations for phonics sets out the provision that should be in place to ensure children are well prepared to begin grapheme–phoneme correspondence and blending at the start of Reception.

The provision offered at Woodham Tots includes a balance of child-led and adult-led experiences. These experiences help to develop an awareness of sound, through activities that develop focused listening and attention, including oral blending and segmenting.
