At Ermine Primary Academy, children are taught phonics using Read Write Inc. Read Write Inc. Phonics teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. They learn to form each letter, spell correctly, and compose their ideas step-by-step.
Children are taught synthetic phonics in a set order and will revist sounds and learn to use these to blend to make a word. They learn to read a mixture of green and red words. Green words you are able to sound out and blend. Red words you can not.
Children are regularly assessed on their phonic knowledge and progress through the Read Write Inc scheme.
