Abingdon Primary School follow the Read, Write, Inc phonics and reading scheme for children in EYFS and KS1 with some of our children continuing the scheme until they are confident readers in KS2.
Our consistent and rigorous approach to teaching early reading enables children to master the key skills that research suggests is important early on.
To do this, we follow the Read Write Inc. programme; this sets out a sequence of lessons that teach children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. They also learn to form each letter, spell correctly and compose their ideas step-by-step.
Children from Reception to Year 3 are assessed and placed into a corresponding group. They will then bring home a reading book that links to their phonic ability.
Below is a copy of the speed sounds that the children will learn. This is displayed during lessons for the children to see.
