KS1 Phonics & Reading Schemes

At Abraham Moss, we aim for all our children to become fluent, confident readers, who are passionate about reading.

Children who read regularly or are read to regularly have the opportunity to open the doors to so many different worlds! More importantly, reading will give your child the tools to become independent life-long learners.

We can achieve this together through:

  • Read Write Inc., a program to help your child read at school
  • Encouraging children to develop a love of books by reading to them daily, at home and at school
  • Giving children access to a wide range of books at school and at home
  • Repeated readings of the same book to build up fluency and knowledge of vocabulary

The Government strongly recommends the use of synthetic phonics when teaching early literacy skills to children. Synthetic phonics is simply the ability to convert a letter or letter groups into sounds that are then blended together into a word.

Here at Abraham Moss Community School, we are using the Read Write Inc. (RWI) programme to get children off to a flying start with their English.

RWI is a complete phonics programme with high quality training, assessment, intervention and resources (including decodable books). We train all new members of staff in the RWI approach and provide ongoing training and support for existing teachers and support staff. We also carry out interventions to support pupils to ‘keep up’ with the programme.

The children are assessed regularly and grouped according to their ability. They will work with a RWI trained teacher or teaching Assistant.
