Reading and Phonics at Welbeck

Phonics at Welbeck Academy

PHONICS: Rationale

 

To master phonics skills pupils at Welbeck are taught through a highly structured and systematic programme called Read, Write INC.  This starts with the easiest sounds and progresses through to the most complex way systematically. Pupils are taught how to recognise the sounds that each individual letters make; identify the sounds that different combinations of letters make; and blend those sounds together from left to right to make a word. Once mastered, our pupils then use this knowledge to ‘decode’ new words that they see or hear. Pupils are given opportunities to apply these skills in a range of broader curriculum subjects.

 

Core Strategies we use:

 

  • Read, Write, Inc
  • Letters and Sounds

Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation: Rationale

 

To master core spelling, grammar and punctuation skills pupils are taught specific SPAG skills through a discrete and highly structured and systematic programme with a focus on:

  • Providing the necessary experiences in order to develop their spelling skills.
  • Equipping pupils with a range of phonological options to be able to select appropriate spelling and common spelling patterns, through a variety of teaching strategies
  • Ensuring that pupils have a secure grasp of grammar knowledge, and can demonstrate a secure grasp of linguistic skills both orally and in written work
  • Ensuring all pupils can demonstrate effective and precise oracy skills, and can confidently participate in discussions, debates, oral storytelling and public speaking.
  • Pupils are given opportunities to apply these skills in a range of broader curriculum subjects

 

Core Strategies we use:

 

  • Read, Write, Inc
