Phonics

 

We have put together a document to help support your child learning phonics at home. 

Read Write Inc. Speed Sounds

 

At the heart of Read Write Inc. Phonics is the systematic teaching of all the common sounds in the English language (RWI calls these the Speed Sounds). Children are taught to recognise the sounds and to put them together (‘sound blend’ them) into words for reading.

 

Children are taught one way of representing the 44 main sounds of English first, and then go on to learn the alternative spellings later on.

 

When teaching the letter sounds, it is important to remember to keep them very ‘pure’ and distinct, to help with sound-blending later on. To enable your child to gain confidence in reading, they should only be asked to read words containing letter sounds they know securely.

 

Read Write Inc. introduces the simple Speed Sounds with Speed Sounds Set 1 and Set 2. They then learn more ways of writing the same sounds with the complex Speed Sounds Set 3. Children are taught letter names before moving on to Speed Sounds Set 3.

 

Once children know the first set of Speed Sounds, they are ready to read the first Storybooks.

 

If you have a look on the Read Write Inc website have a look at the ‘Downloads and Videos’ tab at the top of the website and you can look at videos of how to pronounce the sounds properly ‘Sound Pronunciation Guide’. You can also look at the Parents section.
