Phonics and Reading

At Kettlesing Felliscliffe School we teach our phonics and reading through 'Read Write Inc.’. This is an exciting and vibrant programme which teaches our children to read and write letter sounds quickly; decode with ease and confidence so reading with fluency and expression. As the children progress, this programme also encourages confident writing by encouraging the children to rehearse orally what they wish to write and by introducing new words and phrases to them.

Through this programme, our children learn how to work effectively with a partner and can discuss their learning confidently.

Please visit our Key Information section (Booklets and Information for Parents) for further guidance on how the programme progresses. Also, on Class 1's page, there is a handy handwriting sheet!

In addition to this programme, we have a vast range of reading material that our children take home to read. These 'home readers' are progressive and aim to develop not only the children's vocabulary and word recognition but, more importantly, their comprehension and inference skills.
