Phonic Teaching and Learning at Coley Primary
At Coley Primary School, we use the Read Write Inc. (RWI) programme to develop our children’s phonic journey. RWI is a method of letter sounds and synthetic phonics and it has proved to get children off to a flying start with their reading and writing learning.
Reading opens the door to learning. A child who reads a lot will become a good reader. A good reader will be able to read more challenging material. A child who reads challenging material is a child who will learn. The more a child learns, the more he or she will want to find out. At Coley Primary School we aim for all our children to become fluent, confident readers who are passionate about reading.
Children who read regularly or are read to regularly have the opportunity to open the doors to so many different worlds! More importantly, reading will give your child the tools to become independent life-long learners.
