Phonics - Read Write inc.

At Dersingham, we follow the Ruth Miskin 'Read Write Inc.' programme to teach synthetic phonics in the EYFS and KS1.

Children in KS1 receive a 60 minute session each morning, in addition to their Reading and Writing lessons in class.  Children in EYFS receive a 45 minute session.

How you can support at home

Ask your child about the sounds they are learning in school.  Encourage them to practise reading and writing their new sound every day.

There are a large number of videos for parents on the Ruth Miskin training website, as well as on her You Tube channel.  We have included some of the key videos on this page.




Phonics screening check

Each year in June, children in Year 1 are required to participate in a short, simple test known as the Phonics Screening Check each June.  The Screening Check assess how well children can use synthetic phonics to read a list of 40 words.
