Phonics

At Chestnut Park Primary School, we use the Read Write Inc. synthetic phonics programme in the Reception classes and will use the programme in Years One and Two.

In our phonic sessions, we teach phonemic awareness which is the ability to hear, identify and manipulate phonemes (smallest units of sound). The aim of Read Write Inc. is to enable beginning readers to decode new written words by sounding them out (known as blending).

The links below provide useful videos and resources to support reading development at home.
