Phonics Teaching

At Southmere, we follow the Read Write Inc programme to teach phonics, reading and writing in Reception and Key Stage 1. This is a systematic synthetic phonics programme that supports pupils to achieve the Phonics standard at the end of Year 1.

The following link provides information about what Read Write Inc is and how it helps your child to read.
