Phonics

PHONICS

At Manorfield we use the programme Read Write Inc. Phonics. It is used to teach early reading and writing skills. It integrates phonics with comprehension, writing, grammar, spelling and handwriting. The programme ensures phonics teaching is effective and children meet high expectations.

 

Children learn 40+ sounds. They learn to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. Reading books are closely matched to children’s increasing knowledge of sounds and words. Pronouncing sounds correctly is important so children can blend sounds easily.

Children write in every phonics session. They learn to form letters, spell words and compose their ideas step-by-step.

At Manorfield we use the handwriting guidance below:

In Year 1 we carry out the statutory phonics screening check to identify whether children have a secure foundation in phonics. Children are required to decode words and identify whether they are real or nonsense. The results are shared in your child’s end of the year report.

READING

Our vision at Manorfield is to equip our children with the essential life skill of reading, to know that we read for meaning, that it has a purpose, and to promote a love and enjoyment of books.

Reading is an essential life skill that allows us to understand and to function in the world around us. It enables us to discover a wealth of information and to enter into the magical world of books where we can escape into our own imaginations.

"The more you read, the more you'll know. The more you know, the more places you'll go" - Dr Seuss
