EYFS and KS1

At Illogan School children from EYFS to Year 2 learn to read through Read Write Inc.

The children learn to read by saying the sounds that the letters make. For example, we say mmmm instead of the letter name ‘M’ (em). The children then start to blend these letter sounds together to read words. Once the children are confident at reading words, we focus on reading fluency and comprehension during Read Write Inc. lessons.

During Read Write Inc, the children practise their reading through exciting and interesting books which are closely matched to their reading ability. This enables them to gain confidence and progress their reading.

Here is a quick taster of some Read Write Inc. lessons.

We are always happy to help support reading with you child at home. If you would like any more information about supporting your child read, please come in and chat to any of your teachers who will be more than happy to help.

We have also put some helpful links below which give some more information about Read Write Inc. and phonics.

Reading at Home

All children in EYFS and KS1 are given school books to read at home. These books are carefully selected and the children should be able to read them without over sounding out. This gives the children the opportunity to embed the sounds that the have learnt and to read with fluency.

We ask that the children read their home reading book twice before selecting a new one. We also ask that the parents continue to read stories to their children.
