Phonics – Read Write Inc

All children in EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Year 3 learn Phonics through Read Write Inc. sessions, which take place daily. We started using the scheme in September 2022 because it is an approved synthetic phonic scheme with a proven track record. We receive advice and support from ULT as it is their preferred scheme and work alongside the Springhill English hub to ensure that the scheme is taught well and children are making good progress.

The programme focuses on teaching sounds and the letters that represent them. This skill is essential for children to read and spell words accurately.  

The Read Write Inc. programme is structured into three sets: 

Set 1 - which focuses upon the teaching of single letter sounds and some of the most common diagraphs - sh, th, ch, qu, ng and nk

Set 2 - ay, ee, igh, ow, oo, oo, ar, or, air, ir, ou and oy

Set 3 - ea, oi, a-e, i-e, o-e, u-e, aw, are, ur, er, ow, ai, oa, ew, ire, ear, ure, tion, tious/cious

Pupils across Years R-3 are grouped homogeneously, according to their progress through the programme. When the children have secure phonic knowledge / completed the phonics programme, they are placed into a reading fluency group where they practice reading using a story-teller voice.

Pupils read books that are closely matched to their increasing knowledge of phonics and common exception words.  These books are fully decodable to enable the children to practice reading fluently.
