READING & PHONICS

At Finlay Community School, we follow Read Write Inc to deliver phonics, beginning in Pre School. Read Write Inc. Phonics is a literacy programme developed to help pupils learn to read. In the programme, pupils learn sounds and the letters the represent these sounds as well as how to form the letters. Then, they read books written using only the letters and sounds they have learnt (and a small number of separately taught 'red words'). This gives the pupils plenty of early success and builds up their reading confidence.

At Finlay Community School phonics is taught daily from Pre School to year 2, systematically teaching all of the common sounds in the English language, helping pupils to recognise the sounds and then 'sound blend' them into words for reading. In doing so, pupils become fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.
