Phonics

At St Edmund’s we use the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc phonics programme (RWI).  It is a comprehensive literacy programme, weaving decoding, comprehension, writing and spelling together seamlessly. 

Phonics is taught to children from Reception to Year 2.  Some children in Years 3 and 4 who require phonic will also have access to the programme.

During the sessions we use pure sounds ('m' not 'muh', 's' not 'suh') so that your child will be able to blend the sounds into words with ease.  Each session contains time to:

  •   Review previous learning
  •   Are taught a new phonics skill
  •   Practise their new skill
  •   Apply this skill in reading and writing
