Read Write Inc
The Read Write Inc Phonics programme is the main focus for our phonics teaching for Early Years Foundation Stage and KS1.
In Nursery we focus on Phase 1 from the Letters and Sounds phonics programme.
Letters and Sounds is also used throughout Reception and KS1.
Our EYFS and Key Stage One classes hold reading meetings for parents to share information about the phonics for their year group and the reading expectations for that class.
