We use the synthetic phonics scheme Read Write Inc to teach children the skills to become enthusiastic, fluent and confident readers and writers.
Our Read Write Inc ‘Reading Leader’ is Mrs Bentley
The Read Write Inc scheme promotes the teaching of phonics through a structured and uniform approach with the children participating 100% in the learning process.
Across Early Years and Key Stage 1 the children are taught everyday at a dedicated time and in small similar ability groups with the children being regularly assessed, to ensure that we are best meeting their needs. If your child needs extra support in their learning they will be given this in addition to their phonics lesson.
The scheme ensures that the children are taught the sounds and corresponding graphemes needed to be successful for reading and writing. The children apply their learning of new sounds to read and write both real and nonsense words, in preparation for the Phonics Screening Test in Year 1.
Each session includes these key elements:
Speed sounds session – introduces the new sound
Fred talk – the children are supported to blend sounds in to words using the character ‘Fred Frog’.
Book work – once your child is reading, they will bring a Read, Write Inc reading book home each night to practice
