Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised
120 new readers

Collins is delighted to be working in partnership with Wandle Learning Trust and Little Sutton Primary School.

We will be publishing 120 readers in September 2021 to support the new SSP programme, Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised.

The books will be matched perfectly to the Little Wandle progression and 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 120 books available, including an exciting mix of stories and non-fiction to foster a love of reading in all children.

We will be submitting the readers into the new validation programme for phonics resources that has been announced by the DfE.

The DfE have announced that they will not be updating the progression used in the 2007 Letters and Sounds Handbook, or publishing a new full Letters and Sounds programme.

There will be no mandatory move to a new progression or requirement to change how phonics is being taught in schools who are delivering effective teaching and achieving good results. This means that many schools can continue to teach phonics as they have been and to use the resources they have already invested in.

Schools that wish to improve their phonics provision will be able to choose new phonics resources from the list of DfE validated resources.
