‘Reading by six: How the best schools do it’ ‘Effective teachers are highly trained to instill the principles of phonics, can identify the learning needs of young children, and recognise and overcome the barriers that impede learning.’ HMI Ofsted report on ‘Reading by Six’ December 2010 4/1/2017 Copyright Ruth Miskin Literacy

3 Why Read Write Inc Phonics?
Tried and tested over many years Systematic and structured Early success in reading Training and ongoing staff development We chose this particular programme because we know that Read Write Inc: is rooted in synthetic phonics. has been tried and tested over and over again is systematic, structured and therefore results in rapid teaching and learning of sounds & blending means that, importantly and simply, when children know these sounds well and they can blend, they read books that are carefully matched to the sounds they know. Which means that children are successful from the very beginning! gave all staff 2 whole days intensive training to teach the programme Quote from Ruth: “When children can’t read there is low self esteem. We want them to be reading with confidence, to be able to read quite sophisticated texts at an early age.” Ruth Miskin – former headteacher and creator of Read Write Inc Phonics 4/1/2017

4 What is Read Write Inc Phonics?
A rapid Learn to read programme so children can… Read to learn for the rest of their lives All of us will have been in the learn to read phase at some time in our lives. The quicker we we learn to read, the quicker we can start to read to learn – this phase lasts for the rest of lives. Read Write Inc. lasts two years for most children, if they start to learn to read in the Reception class. There are some children with learning difficulties who spend longer on the programme. 4/1/2017

5 Who is it for? 4 year olds plus Older children who need to ‘catch-up’
Children new to English In using Read Write Inc. we will ensure two things: That new children who come to our school read fluently by the age of 7. It also catches those children who have already slipped through the net; those who are struggling. Read Write Inc. teaches all these children to read. EAL, SEN, dyslexic children also learn on this programme. 4/1/2017

6 How does it work? Children:
Learn 44 sounds and matching letters/letter groups Learn to blend sounds to read words Read lots of specially written books This is decoding 4/1/2017

7 How does it work? Children:
Talk a lot about what they have read to show they understand Listen to and discuss other ideas to deepen understanding This is comprehending Speaking & Listening elements of literacy are built in to RWI from the very beginning through lots of talking and partner work. 4/1/2017

8 Sounds All words are made up of sounds In English there are 44
We use pure sounds (‘m’ not’ muh’, ’s’ not ‘suh’, etc.) so that your child will be able to blend the sounds into words more easily. In school we use a puppet called Fred who can do this beautifully! We call talking like this Fred Talk. 4/1/2017

9 Graphemes A grapheme is a sound written down
English has more than 150 graphemes A complex code! You In English we have more 150 ways to represent 44 sounds using our 26 alphabet letters so groups of letters are used as well as single letters – these are called graphemes. We will teach the 100 most commonly used graphemes for the 44 sounds. But we will teach them systematically and very thoroughly. 4/1/2017

10 Chart This chart shows the most usual graphemes for the 44 sounds

11 The complex English alphabetic code
This chart shows the most usual graphemes for the 44 sounds Each box is a sound box showing different ways to read and write the sound. 4/1/2017

12 Learning the code Children learn a simple code first
This chart shows just one grapheme per sound. We divide them into set 1 and set 2 & we systematically teach set 1 & blending and then set 2 and then we go on to the full chart which includes set 3. 4/1/2017

13 If English had a simple code spelling and reading would be much easier!!

14 c-a-t ch-a-t l-igh-t c-r-a-sh
As they learn the sounds and graphemes, we will teach your child to blend by hearing the words in Fred Talk 1st. Once they know the graphemes they can sound-blend/Fred Talk to read words.

15 How can you help your child?
By... Saying the 44 English sounds in a pure way Knowing the letters and groups of letters (graphemes) used to read and write the sounds Understanding ‘Fred’ and how he helps with reading and spelling First of all, you can help your child if you know how to pronounce the 44 sounds perfectly and understand the blending process.

18 Fred... Fred helps children learn to read
Fred can only talk in sounds... (Fred can only say c_a_t, he can’t say cat) We call this Fred Talk 4/1/2017

19 Copyright Ruth Miskin Literacy
Fred... If children understand Fred they can blend orally Blending is needed for reading Once your child knows the graphemes for each sound, they can use Fred Talk for reading any word 4/1/2017 Copyright Ruth Miskin Literacy Copyright Ruth Miskin Literacy

20 Fred... Fred helps children learn to spell as well!
Children convert words into sounds They press the sounds they hear on to their fingers... We call this Fred Fingers 4/1/2017

21 Storybooks and Get Writing Books
Every day, your child will read and write the words that contain the sounds and graphemes they have learned so far, using lively, fun phonic storybooks and a Get Writing book. There are lots of non-fiction books as well! 4/1/2017

23 So how can you help your child?
By knowing the 44 pure sounds By using the Speed Sound cards with your child By knowing how to blend using Fred Talk for reading m_a_t By knowing how to do Fred Fingers for spelling There are other things you as parents & carers can do at home. See next few slides. 4/1/2017

24 And... By having fun with Fred Talk at home! “What a tidy r-oo-m!”
“Where’s your c-oa-t?” “Time for b-e-d!” back, head, tum, leg, hand, foot, knee coat, hat, scarf, zip, sock, glove run, walk, skip, hop, fast, slow, stop, shop red, blue, green, black, knife, fork, spoon, plate, bowl, pan bread, cheese, meat, soup, jam, cake 4/1/2017

25 And... By reading to your child lots of lovely stories and asking lots of questions! Use these prompts to help you: What is that character thinking? What do you think happens next? What is happening? Reading to your child lots of lovely stories that are at a higher level than your child can read yet. What is the character saying? What do you think that character is feeling now? 4/1/2017

26 And... By talking to your child as much as possible and ‘feeding’ them new and different words: “Let’s eat our lunch now.” “Let’s munch our lunch now.” “Let’s scoff our lunch now.” “Let’s devour our lunch now!” You’re looking ...not just...but... I’m not just... I’m....! A rich vocabulary is essential for high levels of comprehension. The more words your child has in his/her head when they come to school, the quicker they will understand when they read, e.g. “Wow that’s a big dog!” “Wow that’s an enormous dog!” “Wow that’s a massive dog!” Quicker their understanding (comprehension) when they learn to read (decode) the words.

27 And... By enriching conversations through description:
“Look at that rain. It looks like little diamonds sparkling on the window pane!” By having fun with words and language. “I’m as hot as a spud in a cooking pot!” By praising your child for using new words or interesting images 4/1/2017

28 And... By having a look at the parents’ pages on the web for tips and resources for supporting your child at home: or (RWI resources are published by Oxford University Press) 4/1/2017

29 Thank you... Happy reading! 4/1/2017

31 Why synthetic phonics? “Synthetic phonics offers the vast majority of young children the best and most direct route to becoming skilled readers and writers” Sir Jim Rose Rose Review of Reading 2006 Synthetic phonics is simply the ability to convert a letter or letter group into sounds that are then blended together into a word. 4/1/2017

32 Reading levels Set 1 sounds and blending
Fiction and non fiction texts Green, Purple, Pink: NC level 1b Set 1 & 2 sounds Fiction and non fiction texts Pink, Orange: NC level 1b – 1a Fiction and non fiction texts Yellow: NC level 1a – 2c Fiction and non fiction texts Blue: NC level 2b Set 1, 2, 3 sounds Fiction and non fiction texts Blue, Grey: NC level 2b – 2a+ Children are in groups for reading at their current level – children move to next group asap – don’t all have to do every single book. Focused for faster progress. 4/1/2017
