Reading and Phonics


At South Kilworth we follow the Read Write Inc. scheme to teach phonics across KS1 and into Key Stage 2 where necessary.

In EYFS and KS1 children follow a daily phonic programme to create fluent and enthusiastic readers, confident speakers and willing writers.

The Read Write Inc. Scheme teaches the children the sounds that they need in three sets. These are known as ‘Speed Sounds’.

Set 1 - m a s d t i n p g o c k u b f e l h sh r j v y w th z ch q x ng nk

Set 2 - ay ee igh ow oo oo ar or air ir ou oy

Set 3- ea oi a-e i-e o-e u-e aw are ur er ow ai oa ew ire ear ure tious tion

Each sound has a different picture and phrase to accompany it; this helps the children to remember each sound.
