At St Mary's C of E Primary School we follow the Read Write Inc. phonics programme. Through the programme the children learn the 40+ phonemes which includes the alternative pronunciation of sounds. The children become skilled at blending for reading and segmenting to aid spelling as well as learning to read and spell the common exception words. You will hear them 'Fred talk' (sound out) words to read and use their 'Fred fingers' to segment the sounds in a word to spell.
Please find below a link to a PDF of the presentation given at the RWI Phonics Meeting on 3rd October 2019. It also has some useful film clip links to help you support your child at home.
