What is Read Write Inc. Phonics?

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

At this time of the year I usually invite you all in for a meeting to explain how your child will be taught to read and write and what you can do to support this important process at home. Obviously this is not possible at this time, so I am reaching out to you through Tapestry and the schools Facebook page.

 

I will post below some links to videos that have been produced by the Read Write Inc. scheme that explain firstly what Phonics is, and then how we teach it in school.

 

The most important thing you can do is read with your child often and discuss what you have read  with them.

 

When children learn to read and write they learn the sounds that the letters make not the letter name, this means they can uses these sounds to blend them together to hear a word for reading and spelling. Please try to support your child to do this by referring the letter sounds and not the letter names, (I will post a video to help you with this)

 

Beginning on Monday your children will learn (or revisit for some of our Nursery children) a sound a day, I will post the link to the video of each sound on tapestry for you to see, this is to support your understanding of how we teach the sounds and not necessarily something that you need to watch with your child unless they are absent from school.  This is the same lesson that your child will have received in school that day but taught by their teacher and not the video.

 

I hope this will support you to understand how we teach phonics and help your child to learn to read and write.

 

Best wishes

 

Mrs Fautley
