RWI

We follow the RWI Programme which is a lively, fun way to teach phonics. The children like the pictures and symbols and they help them to remember the letter sounds. Fred the frog helps your child read words by segmenting them and blending sounds. 

We also follow Phase 1 Letters and Sounds with our children who are working in our Pre RWI phase.

 Leaflet for Parents

When our children start their learning journey through the RWI programme we begin with an adapted version using symbol supports and Cued Articulation.

To view a video about Cued Articulation click here.

Resources you can use to support your child's development at home 

Here you will find a selection of phonic resources that we have created based on the Early Letters and Sounds and the RWI programme by Ruth Miskin to support your child's learning at home as they progress through the Pre RWI and the Read Write Inc programme. 

Activity Cards to demonstrate how your child learns in school.

You could try these at home too.
