How will RWI be taught?

All children are assessed regularly by our RWI lead teacher so they work with children at the same level. This allows complete participation in lessons.


When appropriate, children will be introduced to the initial sounds in short five minutes sessions.


In Reception all children will learn how to ‘read’ the sounds in words and how those sounds can be written down.


The children:

  •        learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letters/letter groups using simple picture prompts – see below
  •        learn to read words using Fred talk and sound blending
  •       read from a range of storybooks and non-fictions books matched to their phonic knowledge
  •       work well with partners
  •       develop comprehension skills in stories by answering 'Find It' and 'Prove It' discussion questions


The children:

  •       learn to write and form the letters/letter groups which represent the 44 sounds with the help of fun phrases
  •       learn to write words by using Fred Talk
  •       learn to build sentences by practising sentences out loud before they write


The children work in pairs so that they:

  •      answer every question
  •     practise every activity with their partner
  •      take turns in talking and reading to each other
  •      develop ambitious vocabulary
