It comprises of classroom resources to support the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised SSP and a range of phonic readers that together provide a consistent and highly effective approach to teaching phonics.

Update on availability of resources - Tuesday 19th October 2021
We will be out of stock of most of the Big Cat Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised readers, and the set of 120 books until October 25th when we will receive a large delivery of all the books and the set. Orders placed already will start to be delivered into schools from 1st November.

The classroom resources are back in stock now except Word Cards and Tricky Word Cards: Year 1 Phase 5 which will be available again from Friday 22nd October.

Lesson Prompt Cards for Reception and Lesson Prompt Cards for Year 1 have been delivered but there is a delay of several days in the stock becoming available for dispatch, we will update once that is resolved.

Please be aware that due to the high level of orders for Little Wandle readers and resources, it will take 5-7 working days from when the order is placed for orders to arrive. For the items listed above, it will be 5-7 working days from when the stock is delivered to us.


120 fully decodable readers available now to support the new SSP programme, Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised. The books will be matched perfectly to the Little Wandle progression and will support all the Letters and Sounds phases. This progression is based on the DfE's publication 'Letters and Sounds: Improving Rates of Progress 2021'. There will be an exciting mix of stories and non-fiction to foster a love of reading in all children.
