KS1 Phonics



At Roseacre Primary Academy we want children to develop a love of books as well as simply learning how to read. We start our teaching of reading through delivering Read Write Inc Phonics. This is a comprehensive synthetic phonics programme that teaches reading, writing and spelling. The children start by learning 44 speed sounds and how to sound blend for reading. At the same time they develop skills for handwriting and spelling. The skills of reading are also taught through lively storybooks that contain words that the children can decode ensuring that the children progress to become readers and achieve early success.

We use a combination of reading schemes including Read Write Inc, Oxford Reading Tree, Project X, Literacy Web and Pearson’s Bug Club.
