Read Write Inc. Phonics
Pupils have a bright start in their English learning with us starting in Reception and Key Stage 1 (KS1) where Read Write Inc. – a synthetic phonics programme – is taught daily with the expectation that pupils will be fluent readers having secured word recognition skills by the end of KS1.
Pupils are taught the grapheme-phoneme correspondences in a clear sequence from the simple alphabetic code to phonemes with alternative graphemes.
For each phoneme, pupils are taught to ‘say it’, ‘read it’, ‘write it’, using child-friendly mnemonics and visual, auditory and kinaesthetic activities.
Any pupils entering Key Stage 2 (KS2) with word reading difficulties receive timely one-to-one intervention with a trained member of staff.
