In Foundation Team we follow the Read Write Inc (RWI) phonics literacy programme which helps all children learn to read fluently, in our class this is called Fred time.

Reading

The children:

  • learn sounds and the corresponding letters/letter groups using simple picture prompts
  • learn to read words using Fred talk and sound blending

The following video is an example of blending sounds with Fred. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEzfpod5w_Q
