Teaching of Phonics


From EYFS to Year Two, children take part in a phonics programme called Read Write Inc (RWI). Each child is grouped by ability and they take part in a daily RWI session. Children learn 44 sounds along with the corresponding letters/ letter groups using simple picture prompts. They also learn to read words using sound blending, write the letters/ letter groups which represent the 44 sounds, spell words through the use of segmenting, as well as read lively stories containing the words they have learned to sound out, and develop comprehension by answering ‘Find It’ and ‘Prove It’ discussion questions.
