Reading and Writing at Maidenbower Infant School

At Maidenbower Infant School reading is at the heart of all we do. We foster inquisitive, passionate readers who have a love of stories, books and tales.


We have recently started to follow the Little Wandle programme at Maidenbower Infant School. We use Little Wandle resources to support our teaching, and the children will become familiar with the graphemes and associated mnemonics. We follow the handwriting scheme that accompanies the Little Wandle phonics programme.  Please see all the information regarding this scheme below.  Please bear in mind that we are in the very early stages of this new scheme, and that it will become fully implemented in September 2022.


The teaching of handwriting outside the phonics lesson uses the Little Wandle approach.  To support your child at home please have a look at the grapheme information sheets.
