Read Write Inc. is a new literacy strategy within our school. Its aim is to help the children learn many of the phonics (sounds) used in the English language to assist both reading and writing.
Examples of how each letter and groups of letters ("special friends") are said can be found on the Jolly Phonics site. The children are encouraged not to add the 'er' sound after a letter, e.g. the letter 't' is not pronouced 'ter' but is the first sound in "top".
Videos showing examples of how this is taught can be found at the Read Write Inc. website.
