Islamia Primary School


Phonics is the systematic teaching of the sounds, or ‘phonemes’, that accompany the written letters ‘graphemes’ in English. It is designed to teach children to become confident and fluent readers by the end of Year 2.

At Islamia Primary School we use the government approved “Read, Write Inc” programme to teach phonics in daily structured lessons throughout Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

Some children require support with learning phonics for longer and we use the Read, Write Inc. intervention or catch up groups with selected children up to Year 6.
