About us

Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised was born out of a collaboration between Little Sutton Primary School and Chesterton Primary School (part of Wandle Learning Trust) which started during the Covid lockdown.

Find out more in our short video below, which marks the journey to our first 3,000 member schools and showcases our partnership with Collins Primary to provide fully matched resources and Big Cat for Little Wandle books.

Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised has been built around the update (Letters and Sounds improving rates of progress 2021) and draws on the excellent practice of both Little Sutton Primary and Chesterton Primary, as well as our work with schools around the country.

Our complete phonics programme also draws on the latest research into how children learn best; how to ensure learning stays in children’s long term memory and how best to enable children to apply their learning to become highly competent readers.
