Wand Phonics with Phonics International.pptx

  1. 1. Wand Phonics interactive platform with Phonics International resources Information and suggestions for systematic synthetic phonics blended teaching and learning supported by: • Wand Phonics (Wand Education) • with Phonics International (Phonics International Ltd) • and/or with No Nonsense Phonics (Raintree and Phonics International Ltd) Author and presenter: Debbie Hepplewhite MBE FRSA These are 3 separate bodies of work in different mediums that can be used on their own or combined flexibly as preferred and appropriate.
  2. 2. Flexible use of digital and hard copy resources in school and at home • Wand Phonics digital, interactive, full audio, automatic assessment • Phonics International extensive range of projectable and/or printable pdfs • No Nonsense Phonics ready-made, paper-based, pick-up-and-go resources Age range: 4+ to any age as required These programmes are all designed by Debbie Hepplewhite. They are vocabulary-rich and they all introduce a comprehensive range of letter/s-sound correspondences of the complex English ‘alphabetic code’ and the phonics skills and sub-skills for reading, spelling and handwriting - building up knowledge of spelling word banks. Wand Phonics is especially useful to provide the ‘sounds’ involved in learning letter/s-sound links and the phonics skills needed for reading and spelling. When English is a new or additional language for teachers and/or learners, and for parents and carers in the home, the Wand Phonics digital and interactive platform is very supportive.
  3. 3. About author Debbie Hepplewhite MBE FRSA • Long-standing pioneer for research-informed ‘systematic synthetic phonics provision’ in the UK and internationally • Former early years and primary teacher, headteacher, special needs teacher • Committee member of UK Reading Reform Foundation rrf.org.uk and founder of the International Foundation for Effective Reading Instruction iferi.org • Author, trainer and/or consultant of five SSP programmes - plus phonics resources for nursery (3+) phonicsinternationalpreschool.com “My aim is to provide phonics resources and practices for all stakeholders in contexts and countries wherever reading and spelling is taught in the English language.”
  4. 4. Blended provision with Wand Phonics - maximum flexibility and choices! • Testimonials: debbiehepplewhite.com blog • Phonics International DfE-validated since 2011 • No Nonsense Phonics DfE-validated since 2021 • Wand Phonics provides audio and interactivity throughout: “The audio that accompanies the programme is inspired. It leaves no misunderstanding or confusion about correct pronunciation or how tasks should be carried out by the pupils… Wand Phonics allows parents to be involved in their child’s learning and supports them at home too.” Colette Currie Literacy Support Teacher Parents and carers can use Wand Phonics as an at-home digital programme. Teachers can arrange co-operative use of Wand Phonics in the school and at home. Schools, however, should also provide paper-based, rich cumulative content and practice for every learner for the best results - as provided by Phonics International.
  5. 5. The Systematic Synthetic Phonics Teaching Principles TEACH ALPHABETIC CODE KNOWLEDGE: ‘Systematic Synthetic Phonics’ (SSP) programmes introduce the letter/s-sound correspondences of the complex English alphabetic code in incremental steps. The code is taught as reversible: print-to-sound for reading and sound-to-print for spelling/writing. TEACH THREE CORE PHONICS SKILLS [and their sub-skills]: 1. Decoding: Sound out letters and letter groups in printed words from left to right to read the words. [Oral blending: discern/identify a spoken word from its constituent sounds. Recognise letters and letter groups and say their sounds.] 2. Encoding: Identify the sounds all-through-spoken-words then allot letters and letter groups for each sound to spell the words. [Identify letters and letter groups in response to hearing their sounds. Oral segmenting: (split up) a whole spoken word into its constituent sounds from beginning to end.] 3. Handwriting: Write capital and lower case letters and letter groups with correct formation and link these to their various phonic sounds. [Pull capital and lower case letter shapes from memory and link them to their sounds. Hold a pencil or pen with the tripod grip. Form letters with correct starting points and directionality on writing lines.] APPLY AND EXTEND: Apply alphabetic code knowledge taught and learnt to date, to reading, spelling and writing word level and text level content. Discuss word meanings, learn new words [word classes, homophones, morphology and features of grammar as arise – teachers need to bring their own knowledge to meaning-making activities and enrichment], practise reading aloud, develop language comprehension, and build up knowledge of spelling word banks [words spelt with the same letter/s-sound correspondences].
  6. 6. Debbie’s Alphabetic Code Charts and their key picture-words alphabeticcodecharts.com The same key picture-words feature in Wand Phonics, Phonics International and No Nonsense Phonics. The starting point for phonics provision is a tangible representation of the English spelling system in the form of ALPHABETIC CODE CHARTS – depicting the sounds (shown in slash marks) and their many spelling alternatives.

  7. 7. Regardless of ‘which’ body of work (SSP programme) is used, or preferred, or available, teachers follow the same routine phonics teaching and learning cycle for their provision. Select which combination of resources to use for which parts of your two main phonics sessions: digital online (Wand Phonics), projected or printed pdfs or ready-made, paper-based resources (Phonics International and/or No Nonsense Phonics] to deliver the requisite reading, spelling and writing practice: 1. Revisit and review previous code/words/plain texts 2. Teacher-led introduction to the new or focus code and model the three core phonics skills and their sub-skills 3. Individual pupil-practice at code and word level 4. Apply and extend with cumulative plain sentences/texts 5. Over time, build up knowledge of spelling word banks In school contexts, provide supportive visual aids: • Alphabetic Code Chart/s • Alphabet Poster with letter formation • Frieze of the letter/s-sound correspondences • Flash Cards for younger learners • Say the Sounds Posters (younger & older) • Sounds Mats • High-frequency words (as required) • Spelling Word Banks Wand Phonics does not provide the visual aids and paper-based, core resources required for additional support and ample practice in schools.

  9. 9. Example Wand Phonics ‘teaching and learning cycle’ continued: In school, teachers can use Wand Phonics to introduce the new or focus code, and to demonstrate all the core phonics skills and their sub-skills. Teachers can elect to set their learners’ ‘homes’ up with access to specific lessons. At home, the parents or carers benefit from learning the sounds and the phonics routines to understand the school’s phonics provision – and how well their children are learning the code knowledge and applying the phonics skills. The learners can practise with Wand Phonics independently at school and at home. It is important, however, that the learners also get the content-rich, core paper-based resources and practice in school contexts (from the Phonics International and/or No Nonsense Phonics programmes).
  10. 10. Example Wand Phonics ‘teaching and learning cycle’ continued: In school, teachers need to provide practice of plenty of spelling with handwriting on paper. In school, teachers need to provide practice of copywriting, self-dictations and dictations of cumulative, decodable texts.
  11. 11. Example Wand Phonics ‘teaching and learning cycle’ continued: Wand Phonics is a very useful phonics resource as it provides the sounds of the English language, many of which are not in other languages. It trains and informs teaching and all supporting adults as well as the learners. It can be used very helpfully in schools where staff enjoy using digital platforms for their lesson introductions, and learners enjoy the independence, checking and self-teaching provided by the platform especially in the home environment for blended learning. It complements core paper-based resources.
  12. 12. Debbie’s original programme: Phonics International FREE outstanding range of core, supplementary and CPD resources “I have worked with the Phonics International programme in various different settings over the past twelve years. As an English consultant, leader in school, and for the past five years a headteacher of a school that has made huge strides with data, I can honestly say that there is no better programme available. Not only do I consider that Phonics International is the best, it is also the most cost-effective option for schools as its set up costs are minimal. I have seen excellent results when it is used as it is designed in every setting I have worked in, and I continue to recommend it whenever I am asked for advice.” Rachel Hornsey Primary Headteacher The Phonics International programme is FREE online as projectable or printable pdfs and includes guidance throughout. See ‘The BIG Pink Button’ on the homepage for: ‘How to set up and use your core and essential Phonics International resources’. No registration is required. Information and training content is provided via the PI site.
  13. 13. About DfE-validated No Nonsense Phonics Development of No Nonsense Phonics by Phonics International Ltd and Raintree Development of ‘No Nonsense Phonics Skills’ published by Raintree: Aware that very busy teachers, and/or teaching assistants, may prefer or benefit from ready-printed and streamlined resources for learners to apply their phonics practice, Debbie and Phonics International Ltd worked with ‘Raintree’ publishers to produce the No Nonsense Phonics Skills series of nine pick-up-and-go Pupil Books and nine easy-to-use parallel Teacher Books. This series was developed from the Phonics International programme utilizing the same key picture-words, alphabetic code charts, alphabet resources and all Debbie’s experience gained over the years of teaching, training, consultancy, designing resources and how to put them to the most effective teaching and learning use – and how best to inform ‘home’. The addition of ready-made Frieze Sheets, Flash Cards, Mini Code Cards and Sounds Mats by Phonics International Ltd led to the overarching name of No Nonsense Phonics for this combination of (to buy) resources. In 2021, the Department for Education in England validated No Nonsense Phonics as a quality full programme in its own right. Phonics International Ltd also started to publish a series of decodable Phonics Reading Books authored by Debbie.
