Reading and therefore Phonics are at the heart of everything we do at Riddings.
We use the Read Write Inc (RWI) Phonic Programme throughout school, from Reception through to Year 2. Our Nursery children are also introduced to the scheme using the RWI Nursery Programme from the Spring Term onwards as most of our Nursery children go on to join us in our Reception classes.
The RWI Programme is supported at home through the use of RWI Book Bag Books, which all children have access to as soon as they begin blending words in school.
Children are regularly assessed throughout school by our Phonics Lead and regrouped accordingly to ensure the best possible progress and outcomes. Year 1 children are also assessed in the Summer Term in line with the National Phonic Screening Check.
Phonics at HomeAs well as your child bringing their Book Bag Books home every week, they also have their Phonic Story Book allocated onto their Oxford Owl user weekly too! This is the book the children are reading in class with their teacher. Don't forget, the more times we read a text, the more fluent and expressive we become!
RWI for Parents
Below are a selection of links for parents to help explain what the RWI Phonic Programme is all about. The first link takes you to the Ruth Miskin RWI YouTube Channel, where all videos can be found but we have also added links to some of the most important videos for you.
