At RCPA we use the Read, Write Inc Scheme to teach our children phonics

There are lots of great websites to help parents support their child at home with their phonics journey:

Please find websites and games below to support reading and phonics at home:

We are encouraging children to read each book bag book three times. This is to encourage them to become more fluent with the words and then focus on reading like a ‘storyteller’ e.g. using expression as well as gaining a good understanding of what is happening in the story. It is difficult for a child to focus on the meaning of a story while they are decoding the words so as their speed of reading increases so does their ability to focus on the content of the story.

Learn to read accurately by age six… read to learn for the rest of your life.

In October, Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed a visit from Suzie Laverty, from Appledore Book Festival, who shared her story of 'Betty's Binoculars'. The children made their own binoculars and came up with some fantastic ideas to create their own magical stories!

Year 2 had a wonderful visit from Chloe Inkpen, also from Appledore Book Festival. She told the children all about her book called 'Fred' and demonstrated how to complete her step by step drawings. The children all had a go and loved taking part. It was great to meet Suzie and Chloe, the children all enjoyed listening to their stories and behaved beautifully.
