Phonics

At Our Lady of Mount Carmel, we follow the Read Write Inc. (RWI) phonics programme, which is overseen by the English lead.

What is Read, Write, Inc?

Read Write Inc. (RWI) is a phonics complete literacy programme which helps children learn to read fluently and at speed so they can focus on developing their skills in comprehension, vocabulary and spelling. 

RWI was developed by Ruth Miskin and more information on this can be found at https://ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/.

Order of the programme

The programme is ordered through a series of colour-coded books, each progressively introducing new letters and sounds. Children are assessed every term to review whether they are ready to progress onto the next book colour. Below, you can find the progression of book colours and the typical age-range that children will be exposed to them. You can also find, below, documents to download which identify exactly which new learning is introduced in each book colour phase.

Schedule

At Our Lady’s we have phonics every day in EYFS and year 1. In EYFS they learn four new sounds a week with regular review sessions, having a 25 minute phonics lesson as well as having access to reading and writing resources within their play. Each child will also take part in a weekly guided reading session. 

In year 1 we have phonics daily for 30 minutes focusing on set 2 and set 3 sounds. We have guided reading everyday where we focus on word recognition and decoding followed by verbal questioning. We have story time every day with the children discussing the story, focusing on comprehension.
