Phonics and reading skills at our school are taught via the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme which 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 start the programme in Reception and continue through the programme as their skills develop. We assess every child on the programme on a regular basis and match their next steps in learning accordingly.
Each book will contain words in red. These words are called ‘Common Exception Words’ and will not necessarily follow a phonetic pattern that the children are familiar with. You may need to tell the children the word to help them learn them by sight. These words should not be sounded out phonetically. Each book comes with a handy parents page on the inside cover to help you support your child with their reading
Below is a table that shows the Progression through the Read Write Inc Scheme.
