Learning to read is one of the most important things your child will learn at school. Everything else depends on it.

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.

 

 In EYFS and KS1 we teach using Read Write Inc. Phonics

 

Read Write Inc. Phonics teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. They learn to form each letter, spell correctly, and compose their ideas step-by-step.

 

Five key principles underpin the teaching in all Read Write Inc. sessions:

 

Purpose – know the purpose of every activity and share it with the children, so they know the one thing they should be thinking about

 

Participation – ensure every child participates throughout the lesson. Partnership work is fundamental to learning

 

Praise – ensure children are praised for effort and learning, not ability

 

Pace – teach at an effective pace and devote every moment to teaching and learning

 

Passion – be passionate about teaching so children can be engaged emotionally.
