In the Foundation stage and Key Stage 1 we follow Read Write Inc Phonics which is a systematic and dynamic literacy programme that is both fast paced and lively. 

In Key Stage 2 we build on this learning further by following the Read Write Inc Spelling programme which consists of regular ten minute activites that focus on key spelling rules. 

Further information about either programme can be found by following the link below to the RWI website or school staff would be more than happy to share the programme with you. The RWI website also contains useful information for supporting your child's phonics learning at home.

For children beginning in our Foundation Stage, we offer a parent's session at the start of the school year where you can explore the resources and activities included in Read, Write Inc. 

In addition to Read, Write Inc the children have individual reading books that follow the Cliff Moon book banding system. They also participate in regular focussed Guided Reading sessions which offer valuable opportunities to explore texts and develop comprehension skills.
