Daily Phonics Lessons

Read Write Inc (RWI) is a systematic phonics scheme which helps all children learn to read fluently and at speed so they can focus on developing their skills in comprehension, vocabulary and spelling.​

It is taught in over 5000 schools in the United Kingdom!


What is Systematic Synthetic Phonics?

Phonics is the teaching of sounds in a certain order and the teaching of recognising the different spellings of each sound.


Phonics also teaches children to put these sounds together to read words. At school, we call this 'blending'.


Pure Sounds

It is very important that the sounds that the children are taught are pronounced correctly at home and at school. Avoid the 'uh' at the end of sounds like c and t. Please watch the video below to learn how to pronounce the sounds correctly. 


Sound Order

Your child will be taught according to a prescribed, logical order of sounds/graphemes (the letters that make up the sounds) given by the Read, Write Inc. scheme.​


  • Set 1 (without using letter names)​
  • Set 2​
  • Set 3​
  • Additional Set 3


A full list of these sounds is attached below.
