Here at N.C.P.S. we use the Read Write Inc. programme to teach phonics to our pupils, starting with our youngest children in Nursery. The programme allows children to learn letter sounds in a systematic way and develops their ability to read accurately and fluently whilst also teaching handwriting and spelling. The children enjoy learning to read and write through praise, participation, purpose, passion and pace and with the help of ‘Fred Frog.’
Pupils take part in Read Write Inc. ‘Speed Sound’ sessions for 20 minutes each day. Parents and carers are able to continue this learning at home by listening to their child read their Read Write Inc. home reading book each night.
Each child in Year 1 will take the Phonics Screening Check during the week commencing 10th June 2019. Parent and carer support sessions, will be held during the Spring Term. In the meantime, you can find more information on the link below.
You can find the link to the ‘Pure Sounds Pronunciation Guide’ below. This video shows you how to pronounce each of the sounds taught in Read Write Inc. correctly.
You can find more information about Read Write Inc. on their website.
