Phonics and Reading
Learning to read with fluency and understanding is absolutely essential for your child to embark upon a lifelong journey of education.
From reception through to key stage one, we teach our children to read and write through a scheme called Read Write Inc. This scheme combines the teaching of phonics, reading and early literacy skills in a highly structured and integrated approach.
Please click here for further information on Read Write Inc, including video clips for parents which explain more about the scheme, show how to teach phonics and demonstrate how to pronounce pure sounds.
We are a Read Write Inc School badge holder
We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell. Our children do well in the phonics screening check and by Year 2, the majority are fluent readers with the best chance of success in the KS1 tests.
Ruth Miskin Training recognise us for teaching the programme with fidelity and passion – we know what it takes to make reading and writing pleasurable and rewarding for our children.
This badge recognises that we:
- Raise standards in reading and writing for our children
- Are all expertly trained by Ruth Miskin Training – including our headteacher, Mr Geldard.
- Gain the latest programme updates through regular visits from our Ruth Miskin trainer
- Support our most vulnerable readers with extra one-to-one teaching every day.
