At Farnham Primary, we are passionate that all of our children learn to read, firstly through learning the relationship between letters and sounds, whilst at the same time developing a love of literature. We have a highly dedicated team of staff who understand that phonics is the key to unlocking reading, and parental involvement is also a key element of every child’s literary journey. Phonics does not just apply to reading, but writing too- giving pupils the tools and strategies to become independent learners across the curriculum.
How is it taught?
Daily phonics sessions are based on principles and materials from ‘Read, Write, Inc.’ Through the use of Read, Write, Inc, children are taught to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension, as well as being given daily opportunities to practise spelling. This then feeds into their writing, where children are encouraged to independently use the Read, Write, Inc resources in the classroom such as Speed Charts.
