RWI Phonics

Thank you to those that came to the Reading meeting last week for EYFS and KS1.

Read Write Inc. is a systematic and structured approach to teaching phonics and reading. Our aim is for all children to be confident and fluent readers and RWI helps to achieve this.

Ask your child about Fred the Frog (who can only speak in sounds) and special friends (2 letters that make 1 sound).

Your child now brings home brand new shiny reading books. These are linked to RWI and as your child learns a new sound, they move through the RWI colour books. Please ask your child questions whilst reading so they fully understand the text.

Talk about the pictures, take it turns to read each page and make reading time fun.  Reading should be a time to enjoy – use lots of funny voices for the characters too!

You can find out more at:

You can also watch the videos to help with pronunciation and see how lessons are structured.

There are also lots of tips and websites on the reading handout that was sent home last week to support your child and their reading.
