At Southmere, we follow the Read Write Inc programme to teach phonics, reading and writing in Reception and Key Stage 1. This is a systematic synthetic phonics programme that supports pupils to achieve the Phonics standard at the end of Year 1.
The following link provides information about what Read Write Inc is and how it helps your child to read.
Many other videos can be found on the following link to guide you in helping your child to read.
At the end of Year 1, pupils read 40 words using the phonic skills they have learnt.
Please see below for links to some useful videos that explain the Phonics Screening Check for Year 1 pupils.
