Phonics

Phonics teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. At Bhylls Acre, children are taught phonics using Read Write Inc. (RWI) Children learn the sounds in class and are given books which are carefully matched to the sounds they are learning. This helps build confidence and develops their reading, writing and comprehension skills.

As a parent, you can play an important role in helping your child learn to read. Research shows that children who are helped at home make better progress in school. Reading with your child can be fun and very rewarding. It also shows that you value their efforts. If children enjoy reading, it will benefit their whole education. They are also more likely to carry on reading as adults.
