At St. Peter’s we currently follow the highly regarded ‘Read Write Inc.’ scheme for phonics from Ruth Miskin. This is a systematic approach for teaching EYFS and KS1 children to read and write, and offers support for older children to catch up quickly if needed.
More information, including parent videos to help you support your child’s learning, can be found by following this link.
At St. Peter's we have three reading schemes available from EYFS through to keystage 2
Word Study is an approach to teaching spelling. It builds on knowledge about words which the children have already acquired through phonic teaching, and expands it to develop critical thinking, word observation skills, discussion and reasoning skills. The children use the skills to describe words, spelling patterns and meanings; developing a knowledge of words and the way they work as they do so. It's exciting because it pulls together skills we know work in other learning environments, and develops opportunities for children to talk about words and language in meaningful contexts.
