At Gorefield Primary we use Read Write Inc Phonics (RWI) to give your child the best possible start with their literacy. We have put together a guide to how the RWI programme works together with some useful links. Mrs Blythe is our Read Write Inc lead teacher, so if you have questions about RWI, contact school who can refer you to her. Please take the time to read the information as it will provide invaluable information as to how you can help and support your child in reading. Please see the link to the parent handbook document below.
Both Teaching Assistants and Teaching staff teach phonics in our school to enable smaller, focused groups.
Our staff use a range of multisensory strategies to enthuse and engage the children, including the use of interactive whiteboards, games, magnetic letters, speaking and listening, songs, rhymes and practical activities. Children work with pace and are encouraged to apply their knowledge across the curriculum with any reading or writing activities.
