At St. Mary's, quality phonics underpins the teaching of reading and writing in the Early Years and Key Stage 1, with phonemic strategies continuing to be taught and embedded in Key Stage 2. 

Read, Write, Inc., developed by Ruth Miskin, is an exciting phonics programme designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers. The children are taught discrete daily phonics sessions. Sequences of lessons are highly tailored to meet the needs of the children in the group based on rigorous assessment, which ensures they make very strong progress in their phonics learning. 

Please take a look at the information for parents by following this link. Our teachers are very happy to support and give advice; we run parent workshops too, so please look out for the next one!
