Read, Write, Inc (Phonics)

It is our belief that reading is the single most important skill a child needs and as such we want to ensure that every child at Morice Town leaves us being able to read well.

The school is currently part of a 3 year project to develop phonics teaching using the Read, Write, Inc scheme. The children in EYFS are introduced to the sounds and when ready have a daily phonics session of up to an hour. This continues through to Year 2.

Children in Years 3-6, who have gaps in their phonics knowledge, continue with phonics based intervention programmes.

Home Reading Books
We expect all our children to read regularly at home. We provide a variety of reading books for the children to borrow. These may be linked to the Read, write, Inc scheme (eg. books containing the words/sounds currently or previously taught) or ‘Free reads’. the majority of children in Year 2 upwards will be choosing books that are also ‘quizable’, meaning that they can complete a short online test to assess their understanding of the book they have just read. This information is used to help teachers select ability appropriate reading materials for each child and to monitor their progress in reading comprehension.

A range of support material for reading, spelling and writing are available to download below.
