Phonics - Read Write Inc.

At Samares we use the Read Write Inc (RWI) programme to get children off to a flying start with their  phonics and reading. RWI is a method of learning centred round letter sounds and phonics, and we use it to aid children in their early reading and writing.

When using RWI to read the children will:

  • learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letter/letter groups using simple picture prompts
  • learn to read words using Fred Talk
  • read lively stories featuring words they have learned to sound out
  • show that they comprehend the stories by answering questions.

When using RWI to write the children will:

  • learn to write the letters/letter groups which represent 44 sounds.
  • learn to write words by saying the sounds in Fred Talk
  • write simple sentences

Please follow the links to the side of this page for resources for Set 1, Set 2 and Set 3 Sounds.

If you would like to discuss how to support your child with their learning of phonics, please get in touch.
