Phonics at Runnymede

At Runnymede St. Edward's Catholic Primary School, we follow 'Read Write Inc' as our Phonics programme and pupils are grouped for these sessions according to need. Phonics is taught daily for 40 minutes, covering all phases within the programme.

 

What is Read Write Inc?

Read Write Inc is phonics programme that allows children to gain the knowledge and tools to become fluent and confident readers. It sets out a detailed and systematic programme for the teaching of phonics skills for children starting in reception, with the aim of them becoming fluent readers by the end of Key Stage 1.

Within the programme children learn the English alphabetic code: first they learn one way to read the 40+ sounds and blend these sounds into words, then learn to read the same sounds with alternative graphemes.

They experience success from the very beginning. Lively phonic books are closely matched to their increasing knowledge of phonics and 'tricky' words and, as children re-read the stories, their fluency increases. 

 

It is vital to support your child at home and in order to help you do this please find attached below numerous documents to help. If you are unsure which is appropriate for your child's development level please ask their teacher.
