Children at Alne Primary School learn to read with Read Write Inc (RWI), a reading scheme using synthetic phonics, with proven success. The government strongly recommend the use of synthetic phonics when teaching early literacy skills to children. Synthetic phonics is simply the ability to convert a letter or letter group into sounds that are then blended together into a word.
Our staff use RWI to enable your child to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. They also learn to form each letter, spell correctly, and compose their ideas step-by-step.
Mrs Copeland is our Reading Leader, she is responsible for supporting staff to deliver the daily sessions, offer advice and coaching. Most importantly though, she has oversight of all children working on the programme and will be the constant in assessing their progress.
