Phonics – Read Write Inc

'The more I read, the better I get at reading. The better I get, the more I enjoy reading’.


This year, as part of our School Development Plan to raise English standards in every class, all children will have three Read Write Inc lessons weekly. Read Write Inc is a systematic approach to teaching phonics, reading and writing. Read Write Inc is an integrated approach to comprehension, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary and handwriting. Below are some useful videos to help you support your child at home and understand how Read Write Inc. is taught in school:

Year One Phonics Screening

The phonics screening check will happen in June and is a short, light-touch assessment to confirm whether individual children have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard. It will identify the children who need extra help so they are given support by their school to improve their reading skills.  Please follow the link below for more information.

The CBeebies Numberblocks series is an excellent resource for building mathematical knowledge. There are many episodes on BBC iplayer.
We are going paperless - don't forget to provide us with an email address for weekly newsletters!
