Phonics at Rendell

Phonics is the ability to convert a letter or letter group into sounds that are then blended together into a word. At Rendell Primary School, we use the Read Write Inc (RWI) programme. RWI is a method of learning based upon letter sounds and phonics, and we use it to aid children in their reading and writing. 

Children work through the scheme at their own pace and are assessed and grouped regularly according to their current ability. The scheme is split into 3 sets of sounds. Please see the videos below filmed by staff in school which give guidance towards correctly pronouncing the sounds to support your child with Phonics at home.


RWI Phonics Videos

At Rendell Primary School we believe that daily phonics sessions are an important part of your child's early reading experiences. The following videos will give you guidance and support on your childs' phonic sessions. The full list of sounds are further down on the page.
