Phonics and Early Reading
Read, Write, Inc Phonic Programme
Learning to read is the most important thing your child will learn at our school. Everything else depends on it, so we put as much energy as we possibly can into making sure that every single child learns to read as quickly as possible. We want your child to love reading – and to want to read for themselves. This is why we put our efforts into making sure they develop a love of books as well as simply learning to read.
Here at St Joseph’s, we are using the Read Write Inc (RWI) programme to get children off to a flying start with their literacy. The children are assessed on a half termly basis and grouped according to their ability. They will work with a RWI trained teacher or teaching assistant in small groups. The phonic lesson lasts 40 minutes a day and in the afternoon your child will also take part in a whole class phonics session to recap their prior learning. One to one interventions take place on a daily basis for children who need further support.
The Read Write Inc Leader is Mrs Withnall. If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch.
