Last year the school took on a new Phonics scheme - a programme called Read, Write, Inc. The children have already started learning this is Reception so it will be familiar to them.
Possible questions may be:
"What on earth are Fred fingers?"
"Why does my child keep telling me to do Fred in my head?"
"What is a super speedy reader?"
There is a link below to the Ruth Miskin/Read Write Inc. website where there are a lot of videos to help support you reading and writing with your child at home.
If you got to ruthmiskin.com , the tab that says downloads & videos all sorts of videos e.g . speed sounds, pronunciation, Fred talk.
Your child will be assessed each term to ensure they are grouped correctly and receiving the correct support and level of challenge for their needs. Children will also be given a practice Phonic Screening Check each term (See Phonics general page for more information) and you will be informed of their score each time.
There will be a meeting on Wednesday 29th September at 3.45pm in 1D, to learn more about Read, Write Inc in Year 1.
