Daily 20 minute phonic lessons are taught following the ‘Read Write Inc' scheme as part of our teaching of synthetic phonics. The children are taught according to ability - though predominantly in year groups.
Letter sounds are taught first and this then builds up to blending these sounds together to achieve the pronunciation of whole words. Synthetic phonics involves decoding or breaking the words into separate phonemes and then blending them together to read a written word. As each sound is taught, the children are shown how to write and record the sound again beginning with individual letter formation.
At the end of Year 1 there is a statutory National Phonics Screening Check where children have to read real and pseudo (fake) words through segmenting, blending and applying their phonics.
In 2017, all of our Year one pupils passed the phonics screening check.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
