Phonics

Phonics

At Battle Primary Academy we follow the Read Write Inc. programme for the teaching of systematic phonics. Read Write Inc. Phonics teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. They learn to form each letter, spell correctly, and compose their ideas step-by-step.

All Children are assessed in their phonic and reading fluency ability and taught accordingly to their ability. Children receive a daily phonics and reading session which is taught by our staff trained in the delivery of the programme. Children continue with the programme until they are fluent readers.

Year 1 phonics screening check

In June each year the Year 1 children take part in a phonics screening check; children will also retake in year 2 if they didn’t achieve the necessary standard. The screen is part of the classroom routine and will be carried out by the class teacher. The children’s results are shared with parents and the school results published on the website.
