Phonics and Early Reading

Phonics is a method of teaching children to read by correlating sounds with alphabetic symbols.

The teaching programme we use is Read Write Inc. This is an accredited Systematic Synthetic Phonic (SSP) teaching approach approved by the Department of Education.

Children learn the skill of segmentation. This means separating a whole word into corresponding units of sound/graphemes. This assists with early spelling and writing.
