For those children in Saplings who are working on pre-phonics skills, we use activities and resources from the 'Letters and Sounds'
For those children in Saplings who are developmentally ready to access formal phonics learning, we follow the Read, Write, Inc (RWI) scheme. Children are formally assessed each half term so that their progress is closely monitored and their next steps can be planned. These assessments are shared with each child's registered school so they are aware of what is being taught and the progress being made. We will also send any relevant resources home so that you can continue to support your child's development. If you would like to come into class and see how phonics is taught, please let us know and we can arrange this.
