'Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.'

Proverbs 16:2

Every Child a Decoder

At Guardian Angels’, we are passionate about ensuring all children become confident and enthusiastic readers and writers. We believe that Read, Write, Inc (RWI) phonics provides the foundations of learning to make the development into fluent reading and writing easier. Children learn to read fluently and at speed so they can focus on developing their skills in comprehension, vocabulary and spelling. Through RWI phonics children learn a simple alphabetic code followed by a more complex code. All reading books progress cumulatively, matched to the sound’s children are learning and already know. The teaching of phonics is of high priority.

Below are some activities you can use at home to support your child with their Phonics and Reading. 

Ask you child to say the 'Special Friends' (these are sounds with more than one letter, e.g. 'ay' and 'er') then ask them to Fred Talk the word (say all the sounds) then read the word.
