The Teaching of Phonics at Allonby Primary School:
We use the Read, Write, Inc. scheme for the teaching of Phonics from Reception-Year 2, where children will move onto Spelling Rules from Years 2-6. We have chosen to use the scheme for the whole school to ensure consistency to the learning of phonics to then move onto applying these skills to learn spelling rules as children move up the school. We use the Read, Write, Inc. Freshstart scheme, when required, to support KS2 children who will continue to work on phonics with more age- appropriate texts.
The programme teaches children to read fluently and teaches them the skills they need to comprehend what they are reading in small, planned, sequential steps. From Reception, our children will begin to be introduced to the routines and initial learning of Read Write Inc Phonics, in order to give them the strongest possible start. In Nursery, children will begin to work on initial sounds and will begin to use the routines of Read, Write, Inc. to prepare for Reception.
