Read Write Inc in EYFS
Read Write Inc
At Eccleston Lane Ends, we are committed to helping our children to become fluent readers. Children in KS1 and EYFS use the Read Write Inc programme.
Read Write Inc. Phonics is a DfE-validated systematic synthetic phonics programme with a whole-school approach to teaching early reading and writing. It teaches children to read accurately, fluently and with understanding, to spell, and to write their own compositions.
Learning Set 1 Speed Sounds
These are the Set 1 Speed Sounds written with one letter. Children in Reception will focus on set one and progress to set 2:
m a s d t i n p g o c k u b f e l h r j v y w z x
These are the sounds written with two letters (your child will call these ‘special friends’.) They are digraphs:
sh th ch qu ng nk ck
It is important that your child pronounces these sounds correctly. Watch the Sound Pronunciation Guide video to help you. It is really important to say the sounds clearly to help your child learn them. We say ‘mmmm’ not ‘muh’ and ‘lllll’ not ‘luh’ when teaching the sounds. This really helps children when they learn to blend sounds together to read words.
These are the Set 2 Speed Sounds:
ay ee igh ow (as in blow) oo (as in zoo)
oo (as in look) ar or air ir ou (as in out) oy
