Approach to Teaching Reading and Phonic Skills.

We are really proud to use the Read Write Inc. phonics scheme across our academy. Read Write Inc. Phonics is a complete literacy programme, for 4 to 7 year olds learning to read and write. Children are placed into homogenous reading ability sets and then learn various phonemes (segments of sound) and the corresponding grapheme i.e. how that sound is written. Sounds are divided into 3 sets. In Reception children will learn Set 1 sounds and some Set 2 sounds; in Years 1 and 2 (Key Stage 1), children will secure Set 2 sounds and learn new Set 3 sounds.

The programme involves programme specific terminology which your child may talk about when they come home:

  • Fred the Frog: Fred the Frog is a frog which is used as a vehicle to help the children blend sounds. Children learn pure sounds first but then need to learn to blend sounds together so that they can read a word. Fred can only read pure sounds, so the children help Fred by blending the sounds so that they can help him to read a whole word!

E.g. c -a - t sounds out as cat. c- a- sh  has three sounds which make the word cash.

  • Green Words -  these are words which can be read phonetically
  • Red Words – these are words which cannot be read phonetically.

How can you help?

In the Spring term, we hold parent workshops so that you have a better understanding of the scheme and learn how you can help your child to read. In the meanwhile you might find the following videos helpful which explains how to divide words into pure sounds and how to blend them.

Phonics at Year 1

The phonics screening check is carried out in the Summer term of Year 1 and is constructed from 20 real words and 20 ‘pseudo-words’.

The pseudo-words (or fake words) provide the purest assessment of phonic decoding because they will be new to all children. The pseudo-words are identified by a picture prompt of an imaginary creature and the children should be asked to name the type of creature.

This approach makes it clear to children that they are reading unfamiliar words.

The set of flash cards in the link below will help children become familiar with the way in which the Government Test will be presented in the ‘Year 1 Phonic Screening Check’. The sets show how the pseudo words in the check will be illustrated.
