At Duncombe we teach phonics using the Read Write Inc. programme. To teach Read, Write Inc. we use pure sounds. This means we say the very first part of the sound. For example, ‘mmmmm’ not 'muh’ and ’ssssss’ not ‘suh’. This is so that your child will be able to blend the sounds into words more easily.
Watch these videos to help you learn how we say each sound so that you can help your child at home. All of our teachers and teaching assistants in Reception and KS1 have been trained to teach the Read, Write Inc. programme so please ask us at school if you would like more help or you have any questions.
