Read Write Inc. Phonics

What is Read Write Inc Phonics


In Reception all children will learn how to ‘read’ the sounds in words and how those sounds can be written down.



The children:

  • learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letters/letter groups using simple picture prompts. 
  • learn to read words using 'Fred talk' and sound blending
  • read from a range of storybooks and non-fictions books matched to their phonic knowledge 
  • work well with partners
  • develop comprehension skills in stories by answering 'Find It' and 'Prove It' discussion questions



The children:

  • learn to write and form the letters/letter groups which represent the 44 sounds with the help of fun phrases
  • learn to write words by using 'Fred Talk'
  • learn to build sentences by practising sentences out loud before they write
