At Nields Junior Infant & Nursery School, we base our direct teaching of Phonics on the nationally recognised phonics scheme Read, Write Inc (RWI).



Through daily dedicated Phonics we teach the children to:

  • learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letters/letter groups using simple picture prompts and mnemonics
  • learn to read words using Fred talk and sound blending
  • read from a range of storybooks and non-fictions books matched to their phonic knowledge
  • work well with partners
  • develop comprehension skills in stories by answering ‘Find It’ and ‘Prove It’ discussion questions
