Phonics -Read Write inc

Phonics at Millfield Primary

 

Within Millfield we use the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc programme as a framework for our Phonics teaching.

 

This programme is a systematic and lively way of teaching phonics.  Sounds are not taught on their own, as the children learn different sounds they use them for blending and segmenting enabling them to read and spell more words.

 

Within Reception our current practice uses the programme in its entirety, creating the foundation for early reading and writing skills.  Years One and Two adapt the programme to allow the teaching of phonics to run alongside the teaching of English.

 

Over the years, and with increased experience we have learnt to adapt the programme to suit the needs of our children and the teachers and staff take ownership of their groups planning, teaching and assessment creating a programme tailored to your child’s current level.

 

Regular assessments allow us to ensure children are in the correct group for their current needs and also enables identification of children who may require specific intervention.

 

We aim to make each session as engaging and enjoyable as possible allowing children of all levels to make progress and succeed.
