We are now two years in to the Sounds-Write programme at Cedars and it has had a huge impact on our children and staff. Our Literacy results in Key Stage 1 have shown a marked improvement and Sounds-Write has certainly contributed towards this. We have now expanded the use of Sounds-Write in to our Foundation 1 Class (Nursery) and also as an intervention programme in Key Stage 2. We are already seeing clear signs of a positive impact in both these areas.

Starting at the top, the books are 8 pages long and are priced at £2.50 each (except for 'Tim's Pets' which is 16 pages long and £3.00) down as far as 'Is it magic?' and 'Lost' - these titles, and the ones below them, are 16 pages long and £3.00 each.

The first fourteen titles are also available as an e-book (Kindle format) from Amazon - follow this link to go to the relevant page on Amazon UK's site.
