Read Write Inc.

In Key Stage 1 we teach phonics (the sounds of English) through 'Read, Write, Inc'.

Our children learn the sounds of English to enable them to decode (read) and encode (write) English.

Read Write Inc. lessons are taught to all children in Nursery through to Year 2 and include fun, focused activities that develop skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening.

You can find a video demonstrating how to pronounce the sounds here.

Each year, we hold a workshop for parents to inform about the phonics in school and the Phonics Screening Check.

In order to help your child, the most important thing that you can do is to read with your child every day.

You can find the link to the past papers issued by the Department for Education here:
