We use Ruth Miskin RWI phonics to develop our children in the EYFS and KS1, supplying our learners with the solid foundations for word reading and spelling. Children use their Fred Fingers to plan sentences as their writing skills progress, and reading books are phonetically accessible too. Phonics is a daily lesson, taught in appropriate groupings by RWI trained teachers and TAs, giving our children opportunities to learn tricky words and their phonemes and graphemes, as well as Get Writing opportunities.
RWI and phonics support in Nursery
This academic year we are implementing RWI in our Nursery setting, following guidance from our RWI advisor and ensuring that our children will have a secure basis for their RWI learning when they enter EYFS in September. Spoken language underpins all seven areas of learning and development in the Early Learning Goals. Reading aloud, talking to children and teaching children poems and songs are found to diminish gaps children might have when entering nursery. In our Nursery, we talk a lot, sing a lot and read a lot!
RWI phonics will be implemented in the Summer term to strengthen these foundations, supporting our Nursery children to say the sounds of letters with the help of mnemonics, blend sounds into words and read simple 'blending books'.
