Phonics and Early Reading in EYFS, Year 1 and the start of Year 2 is taught through the Read, Write Inc. scheme. This supports the children to learn their phonics and apply what they have learned to decode books and learn to read. This begins in EYFS with the learning of simple, single sounds and continued through Year 1 and into the first big term of Year 2.
The teaching of reading in Read, Write Inc is supported through the reading of books in school and the children taking home Book Bag Books, which are books that are matched to the phonics the children are learning. These books are changed weekly and aim to develop the fluency of the children's reading, by the books being read multiple times, with children becoming more confident with the story thus reading it fluently.
Children also take home a Reading for Pleasure Book, which is changed when they have finished it. These books may include words that the children have not come across before and are for children to share with their grown ups not for the children to be able to read by themselves.
As children finish the Read Write Inc. scheme their reading is more fluent and they move onto the Accelerated Reader program to continue their reading journey. Please see the Reading Tab for more information.
Below you can find copies the most recent letter explaining Book Bag Books and as well as an overview of what the children should cover each year in their phonics. In addition there are videos to show what the phonics are, with clear pronunciation.
