At Ackton Pastures, we deliver phonics through the Read, Write, Inc programme which helps all children to learn to read fluently and accurately so they can focus developing their skills in comprehension, vocabulary and spelling. It allows children to self-correct their work and celebrate their success with a variety of fun celebration actions and phrases. They are taught phonemes using pictures and stories and graphemes (special friends) through a frog called Fred.
Children access RWI from Summer term in Nursery until they complete the programme in Key Stage One. They are regularly assessed and grouped into colour bands. The RWI programme equips the children with the knowledge and understanding to pass the statutory Phonics screening test in year 1.
