Read, Write, Inc.

Read Write Inc. is a phonics based programme which helps children learn to read whilst also developing a wide range of vocabulary and encouraging a love of reading.

More information can be found below:

Lessons available on YouTube:

High Frequency Words ("Tricky Words")

There are 100 words that come up in reading most often and these are called ‘high frequency words’. Some of these words are ‘tricky’ words (said) that you can’t sound out. Other words are words you can sound out (and), but the children need to be able to recognise them straight away.

In Autumn term, we will start introducing the words.
In Spring term, we will be focussing on being able to read all of the words.
In the Summer term, we will be focussing on writing these words and using them in sentences.

 Please see the lists below so that you can help your child learn them at home:
