Read Write Inc Phonics

We use the Read Write Inc Phonics program. 

Read, Write, Inc teaches synthetic Phonics and is an inclusive literacy programme for all children learning to read. At Tyneview we introduce phonics from the last half term in Nursery and it continues until children are reading at their age related expectation in Year 2.  Children learn the 44 common sounds in the English language and how to blend them to read and spell.

Reading is the key that unlocks the whole curriculum so the ability to efficiently decode is essential. The Read Write Inc sessions occur each day as the continuity and pace of the programme is key to accelerating the progress of children’s reading development.

Aims and Objectives.

To teach children to:

  • apply the skill of blending phonemes in order to read words.
  • segment words into their constituent phonemes in order to spell words.
  • learn that blending and segmenting words are reversible processes.
  • read high frequency words that do not conform to regular phonic patterns.
  • read texts and words that are within their phonic capabilities as early as possible.
  • decode texts effortlessly so all their resources can be used to comprehend what they read.
  • spell effortlessly so that all their resources can be directed towards composing their writing.
