At Broomwood primary school each child's phonics journey begins in the early years foundation stage. At Broomwood we follow 'Read Write Inc' sythetic phonics programme. To prepare in preschool and nursery we learn early phonics skills by playing with and explore sound, and equip children with core listening and sound discrimination skills required for success in reading and writing as they grow. Children learn a variety of skills, including tuning into environmental sounds, exploring alliteration, singing and playing with rhyme, making sound patterns and orally segementing and blending words!

Once this is completed we consistently implement the Read Write Inc, synthetic phonics programme across Reception and Key Stage 1, with strong teaching of the core skills required for children's knowledge to become autonomous and enabling pupils to read and write with confidence, for a range of purposes in everyday life.

Further information on phonics and early reading can be found in the Reading folder.
