Phonics - Read Write Inc

We all know that reading opens the door to all learning. A child who reads a lot will become a good reader. A good reader will be able to read challenging material. A child who reads challenging material is a child who will learn. The more a child learns, the more a child wants to find out.
It is therefore vital that your child finds learning to read and write a rewarding and successful experience.

Here at Chesterfield Primary School we use the lively synthetic phonics programme 'Read, Write, Inc. Phonics' to ensure we get our children reading and writing quickly.  Our aim is for our children to be able to read with accuracy and confidence, and above all to love reading.
When using RWI to read the children will:
  • Learn that sounds are represented by written letters
  • Learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letter/letter groups using simple picture prompts
  • Learn how to blend sounds
  • Learn to read using Fred Talk
  • Read lively stories featuring words they have learned to sound out
  • Show that they comprehend the stories by answering questions
The following links are designed to support parents in reading and saying the correct 'pure' sounds, in order to support your children in their learning of phonics. Click on the logo and link below.
