Phonics and Reading

At Hardingstone Academy we use Read Write Inc (Ruth Miskin) for Reception and Key Stage One Phonics, please follow the link below.

Reading and Phonics

Children learn the English alphabetic code: first they learn one way to read the 40+ sounds and blend these sounds into words, then learn to read the same sounds with alternative graphemes.

They experience success from the very beginning. Lively phonic books are closely matched to their increasing knowledge of phonics and ‘tricky’ words and, as children re-read the stories, their fluency increases.

Along with a thought-provoking introduction, prompts for thinking out loud and discussion, children are helped to read with a storyteller’s voice.

At Hardingstone Academy the children will read from a colour banded book scheme that incorporates many different schemes and texts to ensure the children become confident, successful and happy readers who will read for pleasure.
