Wand Phonics is a digital, editable, interactive Systematic Synthetic Phonics programme ideal for Reception (4+) through Key Stages 1 and 2.

Authored by Debbie Hepplewhite MBE FRSA.

Wand Phonics provides 120 phonics lessons organised in 10 ‘groups’.  Each lesson is complete with up to 13 core activities to deliver a ‘teaching and learning cycle’. The lessons include activities from print-to-sound for reading and sound-to-print for spelling with code, word and text level content.

The Wand Platform can be used in school and at home. It is accessible online using any device.

The activities enable repeated teaching, revision and self-assessment to embed learning for every child’s needs. Reports can be automatically generated to provide feedback if required.

Wand Phonics has comprehensive coverage of the alphabetic code in line with the National Curriculum for English (DfE 2014) and the Systemic Synthetic Phonics teaching principles described in Letters and Sounds (DfES 2007).

Audio features throughout, giving pupils guidance and enabling self-assessment of the sounds, modelled blending, modelled segmenting for spelling, and reading texts aloud.
