Phonics

Read Write Inc.

Learning to read is a vital key skill that supports all future learning, and it is important that phonics lessons are of a high quality. At St. Michael's we teach phonics by using the nationally recognised Read Write Inc scheme, developed by Ruth Miskin. Read Write Inc is validated by the Department for Education as a complete synthetic phonics programme.

Children have a fun-packed, interactive session of phonics each morning before moving on to their writing. All staff in Early Years and Reception are trained to deliver the programme.
