Our Phonics Programme

Read Write Inc: Get reading.  Keep reading.  Change everything

Read Write Inc. starts within our Nursery when the children are ready, and continues throughout Reception classes and into Year 1.  Some children will continue to have some specific phonics teaching from Year 2 upwards.


Read Write Inc. Phonics teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. They learn to form each letter, spell correctly and compose their ideas step by step.  Children in Reception and Year 1 have a daily phonics session.  Children experience success from the very beginning. Phonic books are closely matched to their increasing knowledge of phonics and 'tricky' words. As children re-read the stories, their fluency increases.  Children will have books to take home that practice the sounds that they know - they should be able to sound out the words in the book confidently so that they experience success as a reader. 


In our Nursery, Read Write Inc. is delivered to small groups of pupils who are ready.  This usually happens in the summer term. 


Every 6-8 weeks your child will be assessed and their grouping may be altered as the programme works on the stage and not the age of the child.
