Marlborough Primary School

Read Write Inc Phonics

Intent

At Marlborough Primary School we use the Read, Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach discrete phonic lessons and early reading in EYFS and Key Stage 1.   Through this structured and pacey programme children gain the phonological knowledge (at the appropriate stage) they need in order to become confident and fluent readers and writers.

 

Implementation

It is taught daily in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 (autumn term/Yr 2 phonic re-takes). 

Nursery learns a collection of Nursery rhymes and play ‘Fred’ games daily during the autumn term.  They begin learning set 1 sounds in the summer term.

Reception         Teach speed set 1 and set 2 sounds/Fred talk

Year 1          Recap of speed sounds set 2

                        Teach speed sounds set 3

KS 2                Speed sounds set depends on the individual child’s phonologically knowledge.

Impact

  • Increased percentage of children achieving the expected standard in the Phonics screening check at the end of Year 1.
  • Children will meet the expected phonics standard at the end of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
  • Children achieving the ARE in the EYFS profile for reading.
  • Children achieving the ARE in Reading at the end of Key stage 1.

All of the above are measured through the regular RWI and PSC assessments which take place with each child every half term.
