Rosewood Primary School Believe, Enjoy, Succeed Together - B.E.S.T.



An introduction to Read Write Inc

At Rosewood we teach phonics using the Read Write Inc programme. Phonics is a way of teaching children to read and write by blending and segmenting individual sounds. Every letter and different combinations of letters make particular sounds.

Children throughout Reception and Key stage 1 take part in daily phonics sessions. These sessions focus on key reading skills such as decoding to read words and segmenting the sounds in a given word to spell. During Phonics lessons we also teach children to read and write 'red words’. These are words that you cannot sound out and children are just expected to remember how to read and write.

The video below tells you about the Read Write Inc Programme and how we use it at our school.
