RWI Phonics and Spelling

St Mary's uses the Read, Write, Inc. approach to teaching phonics. Firstly, the children learn one way to read the 40+ sounds and blend into words. Then, they learn alternative graphemes for these sounds.


More information for parents can be found on the Ruth Miskin Website:


Children experience success in reading from the very beginning. Lively phonic books are matched to their increasing knowledge as the children re-read to build their fluency. Reading their phonics book multiples times supports children's opportunity to consolidate their learning and recall of their phonetical knowledge.
