Phonics

At Wessington we follow the Read, Write Inc phonics scheme. This is a systematic synthetic phonics scheme tailored to each child’s level.

Your child will follow the Speed sound lessons which are divided into three sets.

Children:

* Learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letters/letter groups using simple picture prompts

* Learn to read words using sound blending

* Learn to write the letters/letter groups which represent the 44 sounds

* Learn to write words by saying the sounds and graphemes

At the end of Year 1 each child will be assessed using the phonics check, your child’s class teacher will give you more information on this in parents meetings.

All Read, Write Inc materials are available to buy online.
