Reading and Phonics

We want every child to succeed in reading and writing at Woodlands Primary School. Staff in EYFS and KS1 have recently undergone refresher training on the Ruth Miskin ‘Read Write Inc’ scheme, which promotes the high quality and systematic teaching of reading and phonics. ‘Read Write Inc’ is a rapid learn to read programme that gives children the tools to read to learn in future life.

At Woodlands, we use inspiring methods to teach the essential skills of linking sounds and letters together to form words, ensuring that children’s early reading and writing skills develop. ‘Read Write Inc’ is taught daily in EYFS and KS1. ‘Read Write Inc’ develops fluent, enthusiastic readers and confident speakers in our school. Through the programme children improve and develop a deep comprehension of a variety of genre of texts, and children are inspired to become independent and confident readers. Children are taught to read and write letter-sound correspondences quickly and to decode effortlessly, ensuring they read with fluency and expression. High quality speaking and listening activities, drama and role play techniques will enhance and support children in their phonic and reading skills development.
