Read Write Inc

 

At St Mary’s we are developing and improving the way we teach phonics. We are using the ‘Read, Write Inc.’ phonics program which has proven success in developing children’s reading ability. The program is different to the way we have taught phonics before and some sounds are taught in a different order.

 

All of our staff are trained in this new way of working and we will be working closely with parents to help you support your child at home. Children will also have two ‘Read, Write, Inc’ reading books over 3 or 5 days depending on what stage of the program they are working on.

Children are encouraged to read every night at home to develop fluency and intonation as well as understanding.

 

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.

Children learn new letter sounds by remembering pictures linked to the sound. for example apple for 'a'. Here is a letter sound mat. Click on the picture to see the way the sounds should be pronounced. 

Children will learn to read simple words on 'green cards' and tricky words that cannot be sounded out on 'red cards'. click the picture to see the video.
