Reading - Phonics

Phonics/Read Write Inc                                                      


At Cantley Primary School, Phonics are taught to the children through a programme called Read Write Inc; a complete literacy programme rooted in the new national curriculum.  It is designed to stimulate and create enthusiastic, life-long readers and writers.


Read Write Inc Phonics is a complete literacy programme for children learning to read.  It is designed to create fluent, enthusiastic readers who have a secure comprehension of texts, produce confident speakers and keen writers.


In Reception/Y1/Y2: The children will be taught a new sound most days as well as being assessed regularly by the class teachers to check they are keeping up with the programme.  The children learn how to orally blend and segment before learning to write sounds and words.


Children are taught in small groups for their phonics input, they are inherently engaged and perform superbly during these sessions. It is an extremely successful process; children demonstrate outstanding blending skills and enjoy interesting and varied opportunities to develop these skills in their own reading and writing.


Fantastic Y1 Phonics Results!

For the third year running 100% of our year 1 pupils achieved the expected standard in Y1 Phonics.  The use of the Read Write Inc programme helps us to attain such high standards.  Well done to all of Year 1 (again!)
