Reading & phonics

Early Reading & Phonics at Broadacre Primary School

In Foundation stage and Key Stage 1 children are taught essential reading skills through the systematic, synthetic phonics scheme- Read, Write, inc. Children take part in daily phonics and reading sessions matched to their stage of development.

Children will learn sounds (phonemes) and the letters that represent them (graphemes). Then, when able to blend sounds to read some words, they read books containing sounds they have learned.

This therefore helps to build children’s confidence, fluency and enjoyment. Children continue on this programme until they can read most words fluently and accurately without the need to overtly sound out.
