Our pupils learn to read and spell through a phonics-based approach using the Read Write Inc. programme. Read Write Inc. phonics teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. They learn to form each letter, spell correctly, and compose their ideas step-by-step. At Limpsfield, we teach daily phonics lessons. Pupils will be placed into groups depending on their phonetic knowledge and will work on phonemes identified through half termly assessments. In each lesson, children will listen to and practise saying the phoneme independently as well as blending the phoneme within words. The phonemes will be taught in order through 3 sets with children progressing through each set as appropriate to their reading level. The teaching of phonics will be supported through the use of set specific reading texts matched to children’s phonics level.
