Phonics - Read Write Inc.
Phonics is the system used to help your children read and write. At Linaker we use the scheme Read Write Inc. This is taught in daily sessions to teach your child the sounds that each letter represents, identify the sounds that different combinations of letters make - such as ‘sh’. It then teaches them to blend these sounds together from left to right to make a word. Children can then use this knowledge to ‘de-code’ new words that they hear or see. This is the first important step in learning to read.
