At Clough and Risegate, we use the Read, Write Inc scheme to teach children phonics and word blending all ultimately teaching them to read. Below you will find some useful links to videos from the Read, Write Inc website to help you support your children at home.
At the end of Year 1, all children take a Phonic Screening check. There is information from the DfE that can be found below in addition to a video from RWI to help you find out more. There is also a useful link to take you to an online screening check practice.
Reading is a big part of life and to support your child in their fluency and comprehension we ask children to read each night with you. Reading at home with your child is very important and should be enjoyable! More information about it's importance can be found below but we do have some incentives in school to help support. Children are always rewarded with plenty of Dojo points that they can save up to spend in the Dojo Shop!
In addition to word reading, questioning your child’s understanding of the text would support them greatly in their comprehension skills as this displays that they have understood what they have read.

More information will be available shortly on Spelling - we are going to be using Spelling Shed which will have games and activities that will promote a fun and more hands on way to support learning spellings.
