Phonics and Early Reading

Our Phonics Curriculum at St Paul's, Utkinton

Here at St Paul's, we use Read Write Inc Phonics.  It is a whole-school phonics programme for 3-7 year-olds designed to create fluent readers and willing writers.

Pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 all spend twenty minutes every day learning and using sounds. Time is spent listening to sounds, forming letters, recognising letters, forming words, recognising words and writing words. We hope that we are able to provide each child with the skills to decode and encode new words.

We break down the forty-four phonemes in the English language into small groups to make learning easier. These are then taught in sequence, not alphabetically.
