Phonics

Phonics Information
We want to help all our children to be successful readers who love reading. In order to decode (read) words children are taught through a systematic phonic approach using the Read, Write, inc programme. We hope that the information on this page will help you to understand our way of delivering phonics, and give you ideas for how you can help at home. If you have any questions about phonics at Dawley, please speak to your child’s class teacher.
 
Read Write Inc Phonics is an inclusive Literacy programme for all children learning to read from Foundation Stage.
 
Read Write Inc. Phonics is a comprehensive literacy programme designed to get all of your infants reading and writing quickly. Importantly, phonics is not taught in isolation.
·    Initial and on-going assessment tracks every child’s progress
·    Children are grouped by ability so they learn rapidly at the right level
·    Partner work means every child participates in the whole lesson
